Looking for a helpful read on writing a better resume, but can’t get around pulling up everyone else’s resumes instead? Search PDF is a custom Google search that filters up books and instructional PDFs.
The ultra-spare background and simple results links will remind you of Google in its earliest incarnations, but Search PDF (or maybe it’s PDF Books Search Engine?) seems to have a bit more discretion going on under the hood. It manages to avoid the bulky piles of PDFs and focus on instructional, or at least narrative-form, documents floating around the web. Each result can be opened up with Scribd’s iPaper viewer, which is a pretty handy way to skim through a multi-page document without having to launch anything on your system.
That’s all she wrote, but it’s a decent link to keep handy when you’re looking for something to read, whether of the how-to variety or straight-up PDF ebooks. Free to use, no sign-up required.
