Thanks again, Isaac.  Does anyone know the
schedule for the patent training academy?  Is it
strictly 9-5 M-F?  My tentative start date is in
September.  This is a really great thread and
I'm grateful to all the ptoers who have answered
me and others

i went to my interview at USPTO last week.  it was fairly short and my interviewer didn't ask me any technical questions and went into the job description 5 minutes in.  He dicussed starting salary with me and asked for my desired start date.  He even gave me a tour of the facility and took me to HR to make sure all my paperworks were there.  Here is my question, after reading many posts, it seems like most people have two interviews.  I didn't ask my interviewer what the next steps were since I thought for sure that I was offered the job.  Now I am worried.  Should I be worried  Huh.  I don't want to quit my current job until I receive the offical notification, but I really want to quit now  Undecided

I had my first interview too, and was asked very technical
questions.  It is not official yet that I will be hired,
even though I was given a tour, start date, and
discussed salary.  I am trying to hold off on declining
other job offers until I hear from the PTO.
It is my understanding that I might even have two
more interviews after the first, with the area in
which I am to specialize, then maybe with HR.
I think they are still comparing us all to one another.

I was under the impression they are hiring as many people as they can get ahold of, provided they have decent technical knowledges and backgrounds...

I don't want to repeat what they said to me,
but they made it clear that hiring me was tentative,
even though my interview went well.
They talked to me like I was going to be working there.  I wouldn't
quit your job if I were you just yet.  I know I am not
counting my chickens before they're hatched!
I wouldn't be worried though.
