New Franchisee in Falls Church, VA!

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.

What Clients Say About Patrice & Associates

  • Allison Sullivan was amazing! 

    She found my resume online and reached out to me. I had been in the market looking for the right next step in my career for several months and had been receiving calls daily from different recruiters so I didn’t expect anything magical to occur overnight. Allison called me, we chatted quickly about my work experience and she advised me she thought I’d be perfect for a client she was working with….and literally the next day I got a call for an interview with the client. The day after the interview, I was immediately offered a position consulting on insurance claim management. Allison was checking in with me each step of the way and made the transition from unemployed to working at a career I’m excited about in no time at all! I cannot thank her and Patrice & Associates enough for all their help!

  • I am very thankful for Liz Costa.

    She was kind, informative, and very encouraging during the process of applying, interviewing, and finally accepting the position once it was offered to me. I have worked with several recruiters before and Liz was the most friendly and professional at the same time. She made me feel comfortable and also made me feel confident during the interview process. After only a few weeks, I now consider Liz a friend and would certainly recommend her to anyone who is in the looking in the labor market. Thank you Liz, I appreciate you as a person and a professional.

  • Jonathan Litt set me up for success!

    I am truly excited to start this new journey at this restaurant. I can honestly say I don't think I would have been able to pull this off without Jonathan Litt's help. He was more than professional but at the same time he was authentic and explained everything I needed to do to make things work. He definitely set me up for success. My confidence level wasn't what it used to be, but with his help he made me believe in myself. He encouraged me and believed in me as well. I will never forget his efforts. My appreciation for his work and dedication will always be remembered. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for allowing me to be a part of this process. I am forever grateful.

    Thank you again,
