I certainly would not call myself an expert, and I do get my share of rejections, but they are rarely for sharpness issues.

I first sharpen my RAW image (I do shoot always in RAW) using Adobe Camera Raw. Then, after I have made whatever additional adjustments are needed in Photoshop (cropping, hue, saturation, leveling, contrast, etc.), I reduce the image size to usually 1024 x 683 and I give the shot a final sharpening using the high pass technique.

Works for me, and it's the way I have done this for several years with good results.
