Find File: Skip Directory matching a pattern

I often search very large filesystems for a file and in many cases there are 
huge directories, that I would like to skip while searching.

With find I would do:
find / -name 'skipme' -prune -o -name findme -print
(This won't descend skipme)

Is it possible to implement this?
How does "find in files" work in mc? Does it use `find`?
