The best way to find a consultant is through Google. Let's
say you want the very best consultant who specializes in
electronics; Google search on 'electrical engineer resume' or
'electronics engineer resume' or 'electronic engineer resume':
Google has a sophisticated algorithm that is quite good at
identifying the resume of the very best engineer and putting
it at or near the top of the results listing.
Although not as useful, you can find the best engineer in *any*
field (chemical, electronics, mechanical) with a search on
'engineer resume'; http://www.google.com/search?q=engineer+resume
Once again, the sophisticated Google algorithms put the best
choices highest on the list of results.
The above searches have the disadvantage of finding the best
engineer in the entire world, which is of little use when
you need to find the best engineer in your geographic area.
For that, you can add geographic information to your search.
searching on 'USA engineer resume' finds the best engineer is
the USA; http://www.google.com/search?q=USA+engineer+resume.
'california engineer resume finds the best one in California;
You can also find specialists with various areas of expertise.
Try doing a google search on these phrases;
'analog engineer resume', 'digital engineer resume',
'project engineer resume', 'hydraulics engineer resume',
'pneumatics engineer resume', 'aerospace engineer resume',
'microcontroller engineer resume', 'toy engineer resume',
(In case anyone reading this thinks that maybe Google isn't
finding the best engineer in these areas, do a search on
these phrases; '212 engineer resume', 'software engineer
resume', 'mechanical engineer resume', 'chemical engineer
resume', 'quality engineer resume', 'geological engineer
resume', 'civil engineer resume'. Note that you don't get
the same result as you got with the above searches.)
I hope this helps.

Re: How to find a consultant
Such a coincidence: the very first search pulls up
who, technically, isn't an engineer at all. Sounds like Google
actually has a rotten algorithm.
More vanity and stupid web tricks. What a pretentious fathead!

A consultant shouldn't have a 'resume' (or even a 'résumé'), IMO. A
curriculum vitae is more appropriate for a professional.

How to find a consultant
This is a semi-private message to my buddies at
alt.internet.search-engines. Please set X-No-Archive: yes
in any replies that let the cat out of the bag...
I am about to post something under this same subject line that
is crossposted to a couple of electronics newsgroups, and which
makes some rather (*cough*) "creative" claims about Google.
The purpose is to deflate a few pompous engineer windbags who
are way too full of themselves. I am hoping that you fine folks
will play along rather than pointing out the the results I
describe are simply the results of SEO applied to a rather
noncompetitive target phrase. Thanks, and enjoy the show! :)
