The smart way is what Amit mentioned above and the best way as far as now is to index and search using lucene
Introducing Lucene.Net[^]

You need to read your uploaded document files and stored content in the database. when user type particular keyworkd and you found it, corresponding file link you need to display on the search result.

best luck

If i will store every resume in database in bytes format then database get heavily loaded ......... isn't there be anyway by which we can traverse through each document and compare the word which i am looking for?
@AmitGajjar 14-Dec-12 0:37am
i am not telling you to store bytes but read the text from the document and store only text along with document link. if you read all the documents then that may take more time then reading from the database.
