Michael Best is seeking Engineering and Science students who wish to explore the world of Intellectual Property to apply for a paid internship in our EDGE Program.
What we offer:
Our interns perform tasks similar to our full-time Patent Engineers, Agents, and Scientists. We will teach you the basics of patent law through a training boot camp, including:
While working closely with our highly skilled engineers, patent agents, and patent attorneys, we will introduce you to patent law as t relates to various technologies and industries. A dedicated mentor will also help you set goals, manage projects, network, and access available resources to ensure your time spent at Michael Best is successful and rewarding. At the midpoint and end of your internship, your mentor will also meet with you to conduct a formal performance appraisal and provide valuable feedback.
Please include a resume, cover letter, (unofficial) transcripts, and a writing sample. As technical writing is an important aspect of this internship, it is helpful to submit a writing sample that includes technical content related to your area of study. However, any writing sample that demonstrates your ability to concisely describe an item, process, or idea can be submitted.
