    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Cantor Colburn (Hartford, CT) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Brief and simplistic. HR person asked basic interview and screening questions. I described my background and expertise. My resume clearly demonstrated that I had the work experience and technical background required for CC. I was told that I did not have enough experience for the position. The position required 5 years of experience. At the time, I had 9 years of experience as a Patent Attorney and 5.5 years as a Patent Examiner. When I challenged the HR assistant for feedback, she stated that I did not have enough experience in patent prosecution. Indeed, I only had 14.5 years of experience in patent prosecution! They hired a male attorney with less than 5 years of experience with a lesser pedigree and no PTO work background.
