patent law question for patent law peeps

Postby Anonymous User » Thu Oct 21, 2010 1:35 am

in this situation, what is to be done:

problem: need associate job

Law facts: 2010 grad, T50 LS, Magna (top 10%), LaW Rev, won nat mc comp, did a legal clinic (stellar performance on some insane cases), general stud.

Work facts: BS ChE, 10 yrs exp, oil, gas, chemicals, food and beverage, energy, alt fuels, and evil for DARPA, including lasers and flying shit.

Strange Facts: Have finished half my MBA. Need to finish other half but aint paying (Katrina cut this short).

soft facts: great looking, personable, a little crazy. (probably won't work on patent dorks)

killer facts: didnt do a summer job at all. I had a real job. (acknowledgement: knowing what i know now i may have done this differently, maybe not-- I did try one interview session with OCI and that really really pissed me off.)

What do I do to get a pat lit or pros job?

I have no location constraints, but prefer DC.

Any ideas are appreciated. In this market I am looking for people who can tell me what chances i stand or how to improve my chances. and anything else! help!

No idea. Probably the same thing the laid off associates are doing. I do not envy your position.
