Launch a Career with America's Innovation Agency

From the Battlefield to the Boardroom Podcast

Orion has partnered with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), the federal agency responsible for granting intellectual property rights for patents and trademarks in the United States. The USPTO is consistently ranked as one of the best places to work in the federal government, and they are currently hiring Patent Examiners to join their growing team at their headquarters in Alexandria, VA.

Raj Chakraborty, Army Veteran, was hired as a Patent Examiner with the USPTO nearly 8 years ago and has continued to progress in his career. He recently joined the podcast to discuss his experience working with the USPTO and why other veterans should consider a career as a Patent Examiner. Additional topics include:

  • What attracted Raj to the USPTO
  • A day in the life of a Patent Examiner
  • USPTO's culture and why it's a great place to work
