I have a Ph.D in materials science and Physics  and preparing to take the patent bar exam - 2nd attempt. I am presently not working.  Can I   get a  job once I pass the exam or should I wait to complete registration which I think is about 8 weeks.  
 
Thanks.

 
We're discussing Canadian patent Examiner position with a background in Chemistry
 
You appear to be asking about American patent Agent positions in physics. You might have more luck checking other threads or posting your own thread.
 
Sorry but can't offer more help.

LJP, thanks for the info. You gave me a good insight on the topic. As I said earlier, I am about a good year and a half away from graduating. So I will be applying probably next year if they have openings.  
 
There is something else I would like to ask you about - and perhaps anyone else out there with IP experience-. My native language is not English. Although I lived and got educated in North America from age sixteen, I do not speak or write as a native.  Let me clarify this. I do not have a problem expressing myself in English and throughout college and in graduate school it seemed to me that I write well and clear, but the truth to be told, it can be spotted in my wordings, perhaps in my grammar that English is my second language. Will this hinder me in this field? In other words, will I be disadvantaged because I am not a native speaker / writer?

Language shouldn't be a problem.  
 
Also, keep in mind if you plan to apply to CIPO apply 6 months before you hope to start. It is government and therefore a long process. For me it was close to one year from application to start date.
