URL Resume Search in Google

Source: eGrabber

This technique locates keywords contained in the document’s URL. This is often called the Internet “address” as well. Each web page has a unique address on the Internet and you can search these addresses for keywords and phrases. The Google search syntax is as follows:

keyword (inurl:resume)

You can also use the numrange operator to narrow down your search to a specific location. For example, if you are looking for resumes of java programmers in the St. Louis, MO area, the Google search string will be

java (inurl:resume) 63000..63199

Use this technique to get resumes you need to fill your location-specific assignments.
