One Perk of Being a Patent Attorney

If any of your children have the constitution for it, I recommend being a patent attorney.

I get 1-2 headhunter calls every day. And while it may be annoying sometimes, it's a real boost to my sense of professional worth.

I'm happy where I am, but if I ever wanted to move, there are a lot of people who want to help me do so.


  1. Yes, Adam, but tell us about the money...

  2. Yes. The pay is nice, too. Especially compared to what I would have been making had I decided to be an engineer.

    But being a patent attorney isn't something you can do for long if it's just about the money. Many people find it tedious. I find it intellectually stimulating.
