‘In my position, it is important to maintain an overview, especially when it is extremely busy. Questions from colleagues, clients, agents and patent authorities can come in throughout the day.
Because of the great degree of independence, I am able to determine for myself what I do and when I do it. Patentwerk is a flat organisation with short lines of communication, and I appreciate that.
I passed the exam for Formalities Officer without any preparation. The daily work proved to be the best training.’
