• Focus on your core competencies, transferable skills and knowledge gained through education and internships
• Showcase your desire to work for a specific employer
• Tell them why you are interested in the position
• Mention how you intend to utilize your skills to the prospective company’s benefit
• Do not forget to follow-up on your job application

Dear Mr. Grey:
Your job advertisement for a massage therapist instilled a lot of excitement in me as my extensive knowledge in the massage therapy field coupled with my current massage therapy license makes me a perfect match.
During my on-the-job training, I had the chance to obtain a firsthand experience in massage therapy for 30 internship hours. Through this hands-on experience, I polished my skills in facial, body and hair treatments, and waxing services in addition to scheduling and customer service.
My particular skills include:
✓ Greeting the clients in a friendly maner and preparing them for their treatments
✓ Maintaining professionalism and client confidentiality at all times
✓ Performing effective massage therapy using hands, hydrotherm system, hot towels and massage products
✓ Room make up and maintaining a clean and safe environment
I have commendations for my abilities in providing guests with safe and effective massage while consistently exceeding their expectations. I always demonstrate concern and respect in a very professional manner. In addition, I am skilled in setting-up and breaking-down procedures of massage room.
I encourage you to read further about my massage therapy skills and knowledge in the attached resume. I look forward to meeting with you in an interview.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
