I remember writing this blog some time ago, but the core message still resonates in my opinion.

If you're a patent or trade mark attorney and a bit unsure of how best to prepare for interviews, then you're not alone!

Interviews can take several forms nowadays. They can range from informal conversations over a coffee to a structured HR interview, or even meetings with Partners over lunch.

Some will argue that the best interviews should be geared to get the very best out of you as a candidate. Don't forget that it's a two-way process, so the way a firm or company sells themselves to you is just as important. 

It's also a myth that recruitment goes quiet in the run-up to Christmas - in my experience the opposite is true! The savvy candidate starts their job search ahead of the competition in January.
