Using Google Dorking to land a Job

A Google dork query, sometimes just referred to as a dork, is a search string or custom query that uses advanced search operators to find information not readily available on a website.

Google Dorking, also known as Google hacking, can return information difficult to locate through simple search queries.

Tips using this method:

1. Identify your desired job sites depending on what roles you're looking for, and in which country you're job hunting

e.g- A lot of German jobs are posted on, and American at

2. Identify your keywords.

e.g- "fully remote ", "visa sponsorship available", "hybrid" or "relocation" depending on your goal

3. Add a Date to get the most recent jobs.

Be as Specific as you possibly can to get the best out of this method

Below is an example of a Query that you could copy to your browser to search for a remote react developer role posted within the past 2 days:

site: | site: | site: (developer | engineer)"remote" "react" after:2022-11-20



Here is another Query to find a job that offers relocation
to London, for a python developer, posted within the last week

site: | site: | site: | site: (developer | engineer)"relocation " "London" "python" after:2022-11-17
