Having been on both sides of the hiring process, I now look at all of the various comments and see a bit of an information gap. Disclaimer: I have not looked at all of the links above so if one or more contain this information - please forgive. It seems to me that a valuable poll of hiring committees would be "what do you look for on the FAR?" After all, with 600+ in the first distribution I never look at a Resume unless they make it past two screenings: mine and then the committee's. I don't have time and few committee members have time to download and review 600+ resumes. So, WHAT makes a candidate stand out? I suspect 100 people will give 100 different answers. Nonetheless, I think candidates might find such information useful.
