Hello all,
I'm usually a lurker, but this thread has made me smile because just this week I received a 15 page resume for review. This person has listed (in detail) all of the 135 papers and publications they have either written or collaborated on. It's also written in the third person, how do people feel about that? I personally don't like it, but it does make me wonder if they did not actually write the resume themselves. And subsequently, if they did have it written by a third party, they obviously did not trust that person's output because they've now asked me for a review. Interesting...
