Student outreach schedule

We are always excited to meet the next generation of engineers, scientists, and software programmers, as well as administrative, finance, legal, and human resources professionals. Each year, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) engages with college students across the country to recruit the best and brightest to join America’s Innovation Agency.

The team will talk to top engineering talent at more than 30 colleges and universities across the country about what it takes to become a patent examiner. Attending career fairs and information sessions is a great way to speak with USPTO recruiters, learn more about our mission, and ask questions about careers, salary, benefits, and more.
The events are free, but many are only open to current students and alumni. Schedules for this season are posted below. Please contact your school for specific event and registration details if you plan to attend in person.
