Need tips on getting a job as a patent examiner

BSME, JD, Registered w/ PTO
 
Having a tough time finding a job with a law firm, so I'm considering sending in electronic application to the PTO via their website (is this the preferred method?) for a position as an examiner.  I'd apply for GS-9 pay grade.
 
There a few openings for mechanicals to be filled by November.  There is no place for a resume, only a short answer essay question that calls for a description of qualifications and personality traits, and how those would lead to a successful career as an examiner.  
 
I read in another post that it's important to not let them think I would be there only for experience.
 
I read that a J.D. opens up opportunities w/in the PTO.
 
Also read that it may be necessary to have an inside connection.
 
All comments, thoughts, and other tips welcome.
