College works with consultants to transform talented candidates into professionals

COIMBATORE: To provide students with an impetus to excel in the job market, PSGR Krishnammal College for Women has tied up with Fidel Global Consultants Private Limited, Bangalore.

Human resources

The consultant is a human resources consulting form, which offers a suite of services for both corporates and the academia, mainly in the domain of banking and finance.

Principal Yeshoda Devi says: “The college has a working arrangement with the consultants to identify and transform talented candidates of our college into readily employable professionals in the best companies in the country.”

Initial foray

Vice-President Philip Rajan of the consultancy says: “This is our initial foray into Coimbatore. PSGR Krishnammal College is the first college we have identified to shortlist candidates to groom them into industry-ready professionals. We place them according to the needs of our client companies.”

Fides is helping banking and financial sectors to identify quality talent from tier two cities in the States of Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh.


The consultants visit the college, do a pre-interview assessment of the candidates and shortlist them for the client. The client interviews the short listed candidates and the selected candidates undergo a 15-day ‘unique holistic enabling programme’ organised by the consultant.

International clients

Speaking about the programme, Mr. Rajan says:

“We organise the programme in the college premises. Our experts serve as faculty members. We have different experts to handle different topics, and they are professional trainers. The topics include domain training, corporate etiquette, and ways of dealing with international clients.”


Once the programme is completed, the selected candidates join their respective places of work. The final number of students who got selected was nine.

Highest talent

Mr. Philip says that this is the highest talent they have been able to tap from a single college (five from B. Com., three from M. Com., and one from BBM streams).

Fides is looking forward to tapping more such talent from other colleges of repute.
