Why did people choose their school for this program?Why did people choose their school for this program?

"At the time that I took my course of study, massage therapy, there were very few options for course. The course was long (10 months, full time days) but very thorough and a good, affordable program."
"Carrington had flexible hours and a great program. I not only learned massage techniques but I learned all about anatomy and physiology. My teachers were wonderful and very intelligent."
"Price and location mainly. Less of a hassle to stay with parents while in college."

What surprised people about the school they chose?What surprised people about the school they chose?

"I was surprised that there was really no career placement help to speak of. I was also surprised by the cross section of students in my class. There was young and old, women and men, black and white. It was a really great, diverse mix of students."

"I was surprised that there were so many papers and essays. It made sense once I was in the program and learning what I learned, it was just surprising that everything wasn't hands on."
"How much class time was required along with the hands-on instruction. It seemed a little unnecessary."

How do people describe their job hunt?How do people describe their job hunt?

"I basically was my own advocate. My school really didn't provide any placement assistance. I called many local chiropractors and massage therapy establishments and I found work rather quickly."
"I looked for jobs everywhere, like Elements Massage and Body Envy, but they paid low and I couldn't make my own hours. I worked for a chiropractic office at first which was a terrible experience as they wanted me to sell their services. I ended up working at a spa and made commission and set my own hours. I made $40 plus an hour and enjoyed it there. Eventually I stopped doing massage after having children because it was hard to work evenings and weekends."
"Mostly researching online."
