A free Careers in Ideas online masterclass
Friday 27 November 2020
4 – 5.30 pm
If you were interested in a career as a patent or trade mark attorney, this was the event for you!
We heard from experienced attorneys and recruiters about what they look for in candidates, with top tips about the CV and covering letter, the interview, and the kinds of tasks you might be faced with when you meet a prospective employer, for example case studies, problem solving and presentations. There was also advice on finding an employer that’s a good fit for you, and a perspective from someone who joined the profession relatively recently.
In the second part of the event, delegates had a chance to meet with the panellists in smaller, informal groups and ask their own questions.
This online masterclass was part of our series of Careers in Ideas Week activities. It was aimed in particular at university students who want to (or think they might want to) train as patent or trade mark attorneys, to help them secure their first position in the profession.
