I figured it would be a good time to start up a new thread, as the other one dates back to 2005, and has also become cluttered with people asking for general career advice, where to live, etc...I'd like to keep this thread focused on information relating to the hiring process
If you have questions relating about where to live in the DC area, please post in this thread: http://www.intelproplaw.com/ip_forum/index.php/topic,15175.0.html
To start off, I applied for the Mechanical Engineering Patent Examiner position at the GS-9/7 level. I have a JD, have been a registered patent agent for 2 years, and have about 4 years worth of relevant patent experience.
I applied for the position on 08/16 and received my NOR on 08/23. When I receive any further information I will make sure to update.
Good luck to everyone!
