Regarding the one time accelerated promotion, is an examiner promoted from one grade to the next at the same step? i.e GS-7/10 to a GS-9/10

I am an international student and consider working in USPTO after completing my Ph. D. in 4 months. I would be able to have OPT for a working permit then. My question is am I qualified to work in USPTO? given that I could only have working visa (H-1) instead of a citizen or green card holder. Thanks!

Summer,
 
  You have to be a US citizen to work for the USPTO.
 
JMcGuire,
 
 A grade level promotion is treated like a two in-grade step increase.  GS 7/10 falls between GS 9/4 and GS 9/5 in terms of salary.   So, GS 7/10 will be promoted to GS 9/7 (two step increase from 9/5).  As far as I understand, this is true of any promotion, not just the one time accelarated promotion.
