Blog: Why I Teach.
A former student writes:
Yesterday, I received some good news: I have been offered — and will be accepting — a job as a trademark examiner at the PTO starting in May. It took a little longer than expected, but I finally found a way to couple my interest in trademark law with my equally compelling, Maslovian interest in keeping a roof over my head.
Quite frankly, I would not have been able to secure this job without the foundation of knowledge I obtained in your classroom. I came to Pitt in 2004 with an interest in law but without a specific sense of direction. Your introduction to trademark law class changed all of that. So for being the key in the ignition that led to me finally getting a job that I am well-suited for (and interested in!), I thank you.
I can’t wait to proudly display my unopened Canfield’s Diet Chocolate Fudge soda on my desk at the PTO.
Thanks again, for everything.
Feedback from former students is rare; feedback like this is rarer still. Thank you!
This is what counts. Thought transfer. (and useful thought, of course)
