Patents in CV/Resume – how?

Tuesday, June 17th, 2008 - Blog

Brent asks: I‘ve recently learned that a patent filed several years ago while working for a previous employer has finally been assigned a number (United States Patent 7305709) . How do you list a patent belonging to an employer with you as a co-author on your resume?

In Answer:
You can list it in two ways…
(1) As an accomplishment under a specific job
(2) Under its own heading for PATENT – using one of the styles (such as Chicago Manual of Style or APA – depending on your field) to list it properly

It does not matter that it was assigned to another company – most patents are and it is generally assumed to be that.
