Success story

Dr. Michaela Elbel

Partner of PATERIS, Patentanwälte, PartmbB with offices in Munich and Berlin

„Our participation in the IP career proved to be a great success. We met Ms. Carine Makendi, PhD there. She recently started in our office as a trainee to become a European Patent Attorney. This means that the event exceeded our expectations. We could talk to highly skilled talents all day long. That is exactly what the IP career is all about: direct personal contact with potential candidates. You get to know each other a lot easier at an event like this compared to the tense atmosphere of a normal job interview. The presentations were also very interesting. A pleasant ambiance in every respect. I highly recommend the IP career. I haven´t heard of any comparable event, especially with focus on IP. “

Carine Makendi

PhD, Doctor of Genetics and Biochemistry, Promotion in Cambridge, UK

She came all the way from Paris to participate in the IP career 2017. There she met her future employer and started work in April 2018 as a trainee for the well-known patent attorney’s office PATERIS Patentanwälte PartmbB in Munich: „The IP career gave me the opportunity to gain access to the IP industry. It is an excellent opportunity for both employers and employees to meet each other in person. A conversation like this is the perfect way to identify quickly what the other party actually wants. This is something you cannot achieve with a job ad or a webpage. For me, the participation in the event was a total success. I am very happy with my new task. “
