Abstract

To develop a college career site and improve the USPTO's recruitment strategy, the team researched recruitment, web design, personnel psychology, job search behavior, and retention information from literature and sources in the USPTO and private industry. Through this research, the team developed recommendations for the necessary content, design and structure of an attractive, informational college career site. In addition, the team was able to form suggestions for overall recruitment and university outreach, geared toward recruiting top engineers and scientists.
