I have been working for 4 years as an independant inventor focused primarily on two patent families. Some are granted in those families.
However I am finding it very difficult to successfully license.
Lets say I were to go back to the world of corporate research - would my success in inventing be valued by the potential employers?
My initial assumption is that the answer is yes - however that there would be a discount applied to the "years of experience." Meaning that these 4 years are worth less than 4 years in a corporate research position.
What do you think?
