On Day Three of Careers in Ideas Week, we loved all the real-life career stories that IP professionals were sharing. We’ve added some more to our scrapbook below. It all goes to show that so long as you know we’re here – and thanks to Careers in Ideas hopefully more people do – there are all manner of career pathways available to people interested in IP. And there are lots of friendly people here, who’d be happy to talk to you about their jobs and help you make more informed career choices.
Following a research role at CERN, EIP partner Gemma Wooden decided on a career that let her use her science background, but also offered the satisfaction of learning new things and constructing good arguments.https://t.co/OXcc3boPCH#CareersInIdeas @TheCIPA @IPInclusive pic.twitter.com/zOHAAiMCzY

It’s #LGBTQSTEMDay during @CareersInIdeas week. I still consider myself in #STEM although my days as a bench chemist ended two decades ago, and for most of that time there were very few LGBTQ+ people visible around me. I am overjoyed that there is so much more visibility now.
