Experience abroad is of any usefulness?

Hello, everyone
 
I am hunting for a job as a patent agent. I think my background is unique. I came to the midwest last year from China. When I was in China, I worked as a patent agent for 1 year and as a patent examiner for 2 years. I got a Ph. D's degree in physics from a top 3, if not number 1, university in China. I passed the patent bar exam recently. Is it possible for me to get a patent agent job?
 
Any comments and suggestions will be highly appreciated.

Sure it's possible.  Ultimately, you know your background than any strangers on this forum.  And you know which parts of your background are relevant to the type of work a U.S. patent agent performs.
 
On your cover letter, you may consider including the reason why your experience abroad is useful for a job as a U.S. patent agent.  If your work was in English, you may want to include writing samples as well.

Find out from the USPTO webpage which firms have a lot of clients from China. Your language skills should be a great plus.

How would you go about doing that from the PTO webpage?

go to the patent or patent application advanced search at the PTO webpage (sorry, I can't post a link here) and type 'acn/ cn' or 'icn/ cn' you will get a long list of patents and patent applications. click on those and see who the agent or the firm is.
