Sierra the Shinobi


As of now, it seems like I may have a new job, but things are still up in the air.  In a previous post, I had mentioned an "interesting" phone call that I received.  The phone call was from an upscale spa-salon just outside of town asking me to come in for an interview.  Well, I made it past the first two interviews.  For a massage therapist, the first interview is always your standard, "What are your strengths and weaknesses, and why do you want to work here?" b.s., and the second interview is the "practical."   The practical always involves giving a massage to either your prospective employer or to their head message therapist.  The lady that I worked on for my practical is going to recommend me to her boss-lady, as it is ultimately the boss's call as to whether I get hired or not.

I've worked it out, and it seems that after taxes and such, my wages would be the same (or at least incredibly similar) at both places.  However, I think that I would actually be making more money if I took the new job because I'd be getting more clients.  Yes, I can handle more clients.  I can comfortably do 15-20 hours of massage per week (25 if I'm pushing it because I need to make extra money to fly out to L.A. to go to JRock Revolution ^_-), and I don't think that 15-20 hours/week is too demanding while I'm in school.  I think that the most clients that I ever worked on in one week at my current job is eleven.

Um, good luck to me?
