The experienced writers at Career Pro know only action verbs and are legally deaf to the word "failure." After getting to know your personality, goals, and background during an initial phone interview that lasts 20 to 30 minutes, they'll complete their services by giving your resume a careful evaluation, then supplying you with a concise three-to-four-sentence summation of what they consider your primary strengths and best points of emphasis. They'll also send two revised versions of your resume (in Word and text formats) to your email address. If you've been out of college for less than a year, they'll also add your first job into your resume, cogently and compellingly distilling your duties and accomplishments into a few zippy bullet points.
With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were "accidentally" installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage your machine maneuvering and your muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines use your body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches your abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.
