I also have a list of massage therapy job interview questions on my website.

Then there are the obvious things like wear nice clothes, take your piercings out, don’t wear shorts and a tank top.  Also be prepared to do a massage as a part of your interview.

Go in knowing what you want from a job and what you need to make.  Tell them what you need to make an hour.  You can negotiate your salary but you will also need to give them some proof that you are worth it.  What will you do to help them build their buisiness?
