New Jobs

I am thrilled to say that I've been hired by two great clinics. I was very pleasantly surprised to receive 6 job offers out of 8 interviews (one of which I had to turn down before they even had the chance to offer)! It certainly boosts my ego and feels great! In truth however, making the choice was extremely difficult. One clinic that I turned down really felt like home and I just loved the owner. However it was just a bit too far away for my liking and I wasn't sure that they would be able to give me enough clients right away.

I'm very happy with my final choices.

The first, which I'll be working 3 days a week in, is a clinic inside a gorgeous condo building just off Spadina. Fantastic young, inspired owner who seems to have great business sense and is really flexible. There is a pool, hot tub and gym for the tenants to use (me too!) and it's just a streetcar ride away. Also because it's right inside the condo there is a built in clientele.

The second is a fantastic new wellness studio just up the street on Spadina. (I don't think there should be a conflict of interest as the first place mostly draws from the condo tenants) I really love the space, the owner is another easy-going, smart, enthusiastic entrepreneur who wants to have me as the official on-site massage therapist. I'm starting there just one day a week as the clientele builds. I will be the first therapist there so I get a say in how my practice will work and can help start up the business which I think is great experience for me.

I start in about two weeks, as soon as I get my registration! :)
