The Associate Programme brings me a clear & fast-track career path where I am always encouraged to explore and expand my capability.

It shows me that there is no limit to what I can do, even though I was a fresh graduate with limited experience. Thanks to the opportunity to work and lead my team on the front line very early on, I gained deep understanding about Production, both in terms of technicality and people management.

Crystal International makes sure that we grow not only in terms of work, but the most important thing is that we develop as strong and well-rounded Future Leaders. We are given plenty of opportunities for overseas exposure, cross-functional training and factory-level project implementation, all of which are unique experiences that helps me gain a big picture overview of the business that I otherwise would not have.

As my favorite quote says – “It never gets easier, you just get stronger” – The Associate journey is no doubt a challenging and tough one, so if your goal is to become a strong Leader, this is the journey for you.

Embracing the dynamic spirit of the young generation within Crystal Associate Programme has ignited a transformative phase in my professional journey. Crystal Group has truly helped me to recognize who I am and what I need to do to become better each day through challenges, coaching/mentoring sessions and even the permission to make mistakes and learn from them.

 

Personally, I am grateful for becoming an associate. Young individuals like me at Crystal Group are always encouraged to embrace a mind-set of “think differently and act differently.” This resonates well with me as I enjoy doing something new every day. Each day, I would reflect on changes or improvements I can make, recognizing the value in even the slightest adjustments. I strongly believe that taking small steps every day leads to big transformations when I look back.

 

Looking ahead, I am not just a participant in the Crystal Associate Programme; I am an active contributor to the Crystal community, eagerly anticipating the exciting chapters that are yet to unfold in my journey with Crystal.

Joining the company 3 years ago, every moment has been absolutely valuable for me.

With a very clear and fast-tracked programme – “high way or way”, it really pushes me forward with very high concentration so that I can achieve the first big milestone after 2.5 years

Look back the path that I have been so far, I feel so privileged to have opportunities developing myself not only about technical skills but other than that is about leadership skills – it’s such a comprehensive development. Of course, during the time, there were a lot of ups and downs, but with many coaching sessions, reviews, guidance from top management I really got the chances to reflect, improve and from time to time, my mindset and maturity has been sharpened so that I can get myself ready for next challenges ahead. Being a part of Crystal Group and Associate programme, no words can express my gratefulness and sincerity with the chance given. I am very happy and proud to be a little part on the way of “helping the best become better”

Crystal Associate Programme (CAP) offered me a chance to take my very first flight of my life to Hai Duong. This is not only the flight from place to place but it is also a “flight” to my dream – entering a promising career path with the first milestone is becoming Assistant Manager in 2.5 years.

During the programme, I have felt privileged since I have lots of opportunities to learn technical knowledge. As a Technical Associate working in industrial engineering, I take responsibility for enhancing production productivity and optimizing factory operations. Besides that, I also have chance to develop my soft skills with diversified training courses from top trainers in Crystal.

And of course, the journey is not just full of rosy moments but encompasses challenges and difficulties. But it is not a big concern, l can get all the support from my coach & mentor whenever I need it. Besides, CAP also gives me the unique Associate Community where we can live and work together so that we can share the cozy moments, enjoy our ups and downs during the journey.

Words cannot fully express my gratefulness and sincerity with the chance given. I am very happy to be an Associate and a part of Crystal!

My aspiration to join the Crystal Associate Programme (CAP) was ignited during a conference with the participation of various garment manufacturing factories in my third year of university. Upon learning about the exceptional career development opportunities offered by the programme, I was determined to apply for CAP and pursue this path.

Attending the final round – the Assessment Center at the factory – further fuelled my enthusiasm for CAP. The environment was not only welcoming but also deeply professional, leaving a lasting impression on me. Meeting so many accomplished and talented friends here, I became even more hopeful about joining the Crystal Associate Programme.

The programme’s rotation training period further cemented my decision. I had the opportunity to engage with people from various departments and levels within the company, gain knowledge about operational processes and understand the linkage between Technical Support Center – my landing department and other departments. At my landing department, there’s an opportunity for simultaneous work and learning. I have been working on garment constructions, bonding techniques, pattern, fitting, etc. I am eager to embrace the challenges that lie ahead and truly appreciate the experiences and opportunities given by Crystal Associate Programme.

It’s hard to believe that one year has passed since I embarked on this journey. From the first day of joining this route, I knew this program was not just a simple job to make a living; it was a milestone to mark my growtha transformative experience in my life. Looking back on the last year, each day has been a new opportunity to observe, learn, adapt, and contribute to Yi Da Viet Nam. From the very beginning, I received care from the working environment to living facilities, from Top Management to aunties in the dormitory, all of which made me feel like home.

Training sessions equipped me with strong knowledge, while on-the-job experience provided me the chance to grow my strategic mindset, problem-solving, and decision-making abilities. Besides acquiring professional skills, the Associate Programme has enriched my personal skills, such as effective communication, time management, and leadership skills.

The one-year journey at Yi Da Viet Nam has made me feel at home. This is also a place where learning and challenges transform into opportunities. I would like to express my gratitude for the care and guidance from managers, colleagues, and everyone around.

As I still have a long way to go, I hope to continue acquiring valuable knowledge and contribute my best to the development of Crystal International Group in general and Yi Da Viet Nam in particular.
