If your reading this, you are probably on a job search right now and probably wishing you could speak to someone about the hundreds of online applications you have placed.

I know the feeling all to well, and until I met Mike Cinamon with Patrice & Associates, I was pretty a much point and click with job openings.  

With Mike I had a inside advantage, and was able to get my foot in the door and meet every interview with preparation from an expert in the field.  

Thank you Mike and Patrice & Associates for helping me open a new chapter in life.

Sajjan’s Approach:

As a student leader, I had the privilege of resolving, the problems students and their families faced. In a society where people express their gratitude without reservations, I could clearly see their joy with each resolved problem. The first time I had the ability to help someone get employment, I realized how the help I extended as a student leader was temporary, whereas employment builds one’s life, family and the generations to come. I see today with great joy and satisfaction a few families who are enjoying the fruits of my service. Better employment betters every aspect of the family. Recruiting and Staffing is an industry that enables me to extend such fruits in a much bigger scale. My passion and goal is to better the lives of as many as I have the privilege to serve. I believe recruiting is a noble service in its own right.

I believe that most people want to grow and better their lives. When a good opportunity is presented most individuals will be glad to grab the opportunity provided they are convinced the benefits far outweigh the risks involved. I also believe there is abundance of opportunity no matter what the internal and external circumstances of an individual are. My approach to recruiting and staffing is to match the right opportunities to the right people while minimizing the risks and maximizing the benefits both to the employer and employee. Right candidate in the right job is a win-win for the employer and employee. I consider my service a success when the employee succeeds in his job. I will towards that success provide the requisite coaching and mentoring.

About Sajjan

Sajjan completed B. Tech in Electronics and Communication Engineering initially from Regional Engineering College, Srinagar, India and later from JNTU College of Engineering, Hyderabad, India. Right from my childhood he exhibited desire and abilities of helping others succeed. While in middle school, high school, and intermediate (11 & 12th class), Sajjan voluntarily and informally taught math’s and science subjects to his fellow students. During his college days Sajjan was an accepted leader, resolving issues they faced on campus and off campus. After completing college Sajjan took training on Mainframe computers and switched his career into computers. As an IT professional Sajjan worked as a teaching and Lab Faculty, Lecturer for Post Graduate students and then entered into IT industry. After working as a developer for a brief period he got into leadership roles. His latest employment in IT was as a Sr. Software Architect, with focus on Enterprise Architecture. Forming teams, identifying strengths and areas of improvements, coaching them with the skills necessary and mentoring them has been some of the challenges and fruits of his career.

One of the courses in Engineering that impressed him the most and determined his professional choices is “Engineering Ethics”, wherein they are / he were taught that

• An engineer is trained to succeed in not just one field but to fit and succeed in every field.
• An engineer is trained not to just follow but to lead.
• And engineer is trained not to just seek employment but to provide employment.

At some point Personal Ethics and Professional Ethics become so intertwined that they determine every aspect of one’s life. Due to practical considerations and constraints, like many he remained an employee for a long time. Each employment however added to his learning and experience molding him into a person who can combine Natural Skills and Acquired Abilities to become employment provider.
