I’ve eaten scorpions, mountaineered in hard conditions in the Swiss Alps and even hosted a full kindergarten party in my living room, but that doesn’t make me courageous. As a child, I used to be braver. Children show courage! The child naturally tries new things and fails, laughs, tries again and fails, cries, imitates others, follows advice (at least sometimes), then tries again and succeeds.
Awapatent acknowledges this in their trainee program. The didactic approach is pragmatic – all topics are approached with a business perspective to provide the best IP solutions for our clients. In a period of seven months, engineering graduates with diverse backgrounds are trained in IP, intellectual property; patent law, patent applications drafting, licensing, litigation etc.
The schedule is dense, the workload heavy, numerous assignment deadlines to meet, but the atmosphere reflects openness and warmth. Theory and practice are carefully interwoven to provide time for reflection and practice. Among questions and comments, there is passion in the air.
The trainee program gives you a unique opportunity to acquire new skills in relation to intellectual property. Time is well spent and the learning curve steep! I strongly recommend it, if you have a child’s courage…
