You’re a patent professional with about 2-5 years of experience but you’re not overly interested in law. You got into the patent field because you love technology and you love to write. You have a thorough background in physics and/or engineering that enables you to quickly understand new technologies and foresee where they may lead. You can hold your own in technical discussions with PhD scientists and engineers.
