New Job in a Chiropractor’s Office

When I was in school I had thought about working in a chiropractor’s office, at least part time, to get experience and to learn medical massage techniques. And until I get accustomed to working long hours in a row, and day after day, doing the sort of deep tissue work required in that kind of setting anywhere near full time would burn me out in very short order.

So earlier this week I stopped at  school, Pensacola School of Massage Therapy, and talked to Judy, the director. I asked if she could recommend any chiropractors where I could drop off CVs, and she gave me the names of three offices. I polished my CV and printed some copies, along with a cover letter, and made the rounds.

By the end of the day I had two call backs, which thrilled me right down to the ground. Wednesday and Thursday I interviewed with Dr. McGrath, including a half-hour massage on Thursday evening, and Thursday night he offered me a job! He wants me two afternoons a week, which is perfect for right now.

Working short periods of time at this doctor’s office allows me to keep up with things at Emerald Coast Massage Specialists, and also I will be open to accepting a similar position at the other chiropractor’s office. I spoke to her, the other chiropractor, for quite a while Tuesday, and I’ll meet with her and give her a massage on Monday.

Hopefully I’ll be able to work for her as well, and then expand my hours both places over time.

I still will be doing clinical massages at Gulf Coast Primary Care every other Saturday, and perhaps I can pick up some medical techniques at the new job that I can use over there.

But the best thing about this new job is that someone I didn’t know last week hired me to do professionally something I didn’t know how to do at all 18 months ago, and that makes me unbelievably happy.

That is all.

Mark out.
