patent bar hurt my chances

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Jul 27, 2012 12:55 pm

so i took the patent bar this summer and have it on my resume

will that hurt me with some firms that essentially dont have an IP practice?

i took it this summer because i had the time to, im not super set on IP yet. can i just tell firms that? the ones that dont have a huge IP practice?

If you apply to a firm with no IP group, leave it off your resume and they won't ask. Simple as that.

That would require a grand total of two resumes. Hard to believe, I know.
