    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Wilson Sonsini.

    Interview

    The HR called first to schedule a phone interview with a guy from the medical device group. Two days later, the attorney called me for the phone interview, which last about 20-30 mins. We started with some general questions, like why you wanna do this, why interested in a patent agent job. Then, the interviewer asked a lot about my research background, basically was checking if I have the required experience in mechanical engineering, optics, electronics.

    Interview Questions

    • To be honest, the questions were not that difficult. They were just checking my technical background.   Answer Question
