Download resumes (Attachments) from eRecruitment

I was recently asked how someone could download all of the resumes (attachments) from an eRecruitment system.  This could be a useful process performed by a HR administrator.  I was sure there must be a simple solution, so I thought Google might provide a quick hit on the subject.  What I found on google was that there are lots of other interested people asking the same question.  I hope the code I’m providing here helps others out.
