Job Skills Simple Question about Patent Agent Resume

  1. May 8, 2010 #1
    Hey everybody, I was wondering if I can get a little help with a resume I'm writing. I've been working in the nuclear industry as a process control engineer for about 3 years now and am thinking of taking my career to Intellectual Property (Patent Agent). My experience is in computing (programming) and electrical work.

    Should I write down the specific technologies I worked with? (e.g. Windows Server Administration, C# Programming, Microsoft Office, etc.) I am skeptical of how much a company would care to see all that considering I won't be doing that kind of work anymore. I figured that describing the kinds of projects I worked on and making a few general statements about programming and electrical work would be good enough for this kind of resume.

    I don't see where you say whether you're a registered patent agent GTdan. That would seem to be a first step.
