Hello,
 
I just applied for a patent examiner position(Mechanical Engineering) on Oct 3 and i received a NOR of being qualified for GS 9 on OCT 4. The NOR did not ask me to submit any additional materials at this time.
 
Can anyone tell me a possible time line i can be looking at for proceeding thru the hiring process.  
 
I have a JD and i have passed the Patent bar. Just thought i would mention it in case that effects anything.
 
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Since the new fiscal year started, are those on the previous referral list just thrown out?
 
I got this impression after calling HR, although the lady seemed sure, she didn't actually check the referral list to see if I was still on it.
 
It sucks to have to reapply.  I didn't even get an interview until 5 months after applying in my previous attempt.

Anybody read the latest GAO report about how the PTO can't keep examiners from leaving?  It looks pretty ugly.  Check out the washington post article (there's a link to it under the "Labor Relations" heading at the popa website www dot popa dot org).
