In West Bengal, students from the districts usually do disproportionately well in the school-leaving Board examinations.  However, post college education, when they prepare for various jobs and interviews they tend to falter due to lack of proper grooming.  Keeping this scenario in mind, Gillette Guard and ABP have come up with an initiative ‘Safalyo Haather Muthoy’ to help college students from the Bengal districts to ace interviews with ease and then go on to have successful careers.

It is an initiative to groom the youth from the districts of Bengal and make them more confident by making them appear presentable and prepared. Those eager to try their luck at corporate houses after their graduation from the districts of Bengal, gets an opportunity to fulfill their dreams. They often get stuck at the interviews owing to their low self-confidence. This initiative promises to bridge that gap.

Understanding that proper guidance will help these brilliant young minds to come out with flying colours in every situation, grooming workshops have been arranged. This is a 6-week on-going programme in 12 districts of Bengal covering 70 colleges across West Midnapore, Nadia, Murshidabad, Bankura, Birbhum, North& South-24 Parganas, Burdwan, North & South Dinajpur, Darjeeling and Malda.

A clean-shaven well-groomed look goes a long way in building an individual’s self-esteem and confidence.

To address the grooming needs of young individuals and to make them aware of potential career opportunities, we have partnered with ABP group through the ‘Gillette Guard Safalyo Haather Muthoy Program’.
