MEET OUR ASSOCIATES
Automatic Control, Hanoi University of Science and Technology
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.

My experience with the Crystal Associate Programme has been dynamic, challenging, and very rewarding. Crystal Associate Programme was designed with a very structured framework to help us go faster in terms of personal and professional career development. Each day presents fresh learning opportunities, allowing me to enhance my functional expertise and leadership abilities continuously.
Since I was an in-programme Associate, and even now when I take the role of a Production Manager, I have had numerous opportunities to take the ownership with projects and to lead the teams. Throughout the programme, I received substantial support and guidance from top management with mentoring, coaching, and follow-up sessions. This is really help me quickly equip myself with both technical knowledge and leadership skills.
Of course, we also need to put a lot of efforts from ourselves as well. One of my favourite quote is “Life only gives you 10% chance, the remaining 90% is how you react to it”. Therefore, if you are the challenge taker, and your goal is to be the professional future leader, this programme is perfectly designed for you. I hope that we could meet up soon at Crystal International Group.

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.

During the programme, I have felt privileged since I have lots of opportunities to learn technical knowledge.

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.

Bachelor of Logistics and Supply Chain Management, Hanoi University of Science and Technology
Joining Crystal Associate Programme (CAP) has been a dream I nurtured since my third year at university. The seed of this dream was planted when Crystal International Group conducted a sharing session in my university, sparking inspiration that fuelled my ambition to join the programme after graduation.
Over time, I systematically studied and worked towards realizing this dream by cultivating a knowledge-rich mindset, embracing new learning experiences, and nurturing a confident, dynamic spirit. After a 5-month internship at Crystal, my desire to be a part of this remarkable company deepened. I decided to apply for the CAP, and fortunately, I passed the Assessment Center and began my journey as a Technical Associate – Industrial Engineering in June’23.
Stepping into a new role, despite encountering many challenges, each day brings me exciting opportunities for my personal and professional growth. I believe that this is an incredible opportunity to fast track your career and encourage fresh graduates, like myself, to step outside of their comfort zones and shine brightly like a crystal.
Pattern Design – School of Textile, Leather and Fashion, Hanoi University of Science and Technology
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 growth – a 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.
