Veteran Hiring at the USPTO

The USPTO is strongly committed to hiring our nation’s Veterans and aims to be the employer of choice for Veterans.

Our Veteran employees have a proven track record of success after transitioning from the military into federal service. Veterans contribute to our mission in the areas of science and engineering, information technology, contracts, procurement, finance, administration, project and program management and customer support.

Most positions within the USPTO are in the competitive service, and may be applied for under open vacancy announcements that are listed on the USAJOBS website: however, certain Veterans may be eligible for consideration non-competitively for positions not posted.
