ALEXANDRIA, VA – Are you ready to protect what’s next in American ingenuity? The United States Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) is holding a job fair and hiring 100s of engineers to examine America’s patents in 2020!
Hundreds of Open Positions
The Patent Examiner Recruitment Open House event in Alexandria, VA (DC Metro Area) is designed to attract soon-to-be graduates and professionals with backgrounds in biomedical, computer, electrical, and mechanical engineering by offering actionable information about job opportunities, salary, benefits, and how to apply to hundreds of open positions currently available in Alexandria, Virginia; San Jose, California; and Detroit. Even more positions will be opening up in the agency’s Rocky Mountain regional office in Denver later in the year.
Patent examination is a mission-critical component of the intellectual property ecosystem and the agency’s efforts to safeguard American ingenuity. Over 200 years of protecting American ingenuity and still going strong! Our examiners work closely with entrepreneurs to process their patent applications and determine whether or not a patent can be granted.
This translates into endless job possibilities for engineers who have a passion for public service and understand that this work is important to humanity. By granting exclusivity rights for cutting-edge inventions that improve lives—or save them—innovations can equitably enter the global market and make the world a better place.
Recruiters Will Be On Site
In addition to learning about the work of patent examination and hearing directly from those who love what they do, attendees will get a chance to speak one-on-one with recruiters who will review resumes and discuss qualifications.
The Alexandria job fair will take place at the Madison Building at the USPTO headquarters in Alexandria. Day one will take place in the Global IP Academy (GIPA) and day two in the Clara Barton Auditorium. The dates are on Friday, February 28th, and Saturday, February 29th.
