Careers in Ideas is an initiative that was created for anyone considering – or who might consider – a career in the world of intellectual property, and for those who support them in their choices: careers advisers, teachers and parents.
This launch event gives everyone the opportunity to see the Careers in Ideas resources and take part in a discussion regarding the next steps to disseminate this information and help to increase diversity in IP. Careers in Ideas aims to raise awareness of all types of jobs within the IP sector, from those suitable for school-leavers to those that require further education. Therefore, we welcome all IP professionals and their colleagues – including administrators, searchers, IP managers, licensing executives as well as those in HR or practice management roles – and also professionals from the education, careers and outreach sectors to the launch event. Therefore, please share details of this event with your own contacts within the education, careers and outreach sectors, to help us widen our network and raise awareness of the IP professions.
Careers in Ideas is a powerful, profession-wide outreach initiative which can add strength and credibility to individual organisations’ recruitment efforts. We hope, therefore, that this showcase event will be of interest and value to all IP professionals.
