Apologies if this question has been posted before. No luck finding it through search.
I am looking to start a career in Intellectual Property. I graduated law school in May 2010, took the February bar exam, and I am currently eligible to that the patent bar under Category B: Option 4 (undergraduate in telecommunications/psychology).
"Option 4: 40 semester hours in a combination consisting of the following:
8 semester hours of chemistry or 8 semester hours of physics, obtained in two sequential courses, each course including a lab, and
32 semester hours of chemistry, physics, biology, botany, microbiology, molecular biology, or engineering."
I am currently in the unenviable process of applying for permanent employment in this exceptional job market. I am seeking advice and/or information about the job prospects in the IP realm for someone with category B patent bar eligibility.
What types of firms should I look at?
Likelihood of receiving a position with an IP firm with no specific undergraduate degree in a scientific or technical field?
Methods of improving my chances (resume tips)
Any other advice is appreciated.
