Vietnamese young talents are capable of undertaking global projects if given the opportunity

The IT industry is growing and changing every hour around the world, and in Vietnam specifically. Being able to catch up and respond quickly to the latest technology trends is always a challenge for young people. The concern is whether Vietnamese young people are able to get themselves involved in global technology projects with international colleagues.

Ms. Tran Phan Nam – HR Director at NashTech, has shared the opportunities and challenges that young talents are facing when participating in global technology projects.

The tendency to work at global company

The tendency to work for a multinational or foreign company is increasing, not only for senior employees, but also for fresh graduates. What do you think about this?

International companies attract potential employees in a number of ways such as the professional working environment, a wide range of opportunities to learn and the challenge to improve personal skills. In my opinion, young people are “trendy” by getting themselves ready for the type of company they want to contribute to, which are, mostly, international ones. This is not a trend of international orientation but just simply a choice. Being aware of future career opportunities encourages young people to make a huge effort for the place where they aspire to work.

Could you share about the advantages and disadvantages of working at a foreign company in general?

It can’t be denied that the professional environment of multinational companies offers employees more professional development opportunities, especially to work with foreign colleagues who come from different parts of the world.

Young people are proving that they are capable of undertaking global-scale projects if given the chance. For example, at NashTech, we create opportunities for young talents to participate in global projects and to provide the most dominant technology trends for “big” clients. By continuously taking part in international projects, you are always up to date with the world’s latest trends and being an effective employee in a multinational environment.

However, competitive pressure is inevitable in any workplace. It requires employees to keep learning and putting their best effort into work. Since technology always develops, failure to move forward will push you back. Let’s look on the bright side, you should see it as an opportunity to develop yourself (smile).

How has NashTech made its workplace more international?

As the technology and advisory department of Harvey Nash Group plc, NashTech focuses on creating a dynamic work environment, where employees are encouraged to express their own creativity and personal perspectives. NashTech is where you can collaborate with foreign co-workers on “big” projects such as handling and analysing over 100 million photos for billions of customers on Google shopping, or developing automated parking technology for Ford cars. It is in these projects that talents gain a solid background and can look ahead their long-term careers.

Stay local, impact global

How are NashTech employees trained to adapt to the global working environment?

At NashTech, knowledge and practical professional skills are set through the top leading projects with international, world-class clients as well as from your experienced colleagues. You will take part in our cultural exchange programs and employees are encouraged to participate in language courses, social events and sporting activities to ensure their work-life balance. Investment in human resources is always the top priority at NashTech.

Working in a multinational environment and learning from experienced colleagues are key advantages for employees of NashTech.

Do you think the young programmers and fresh graduates meet the criteria for working in a foreign company like NashTech?

Vietnam’s economy is growing strongly, resulting in a significant demand for human resources. At the moment, we are seeking young people who are creative, willing to learn and take on challenges. Having good communication skills, a high capability in foreign languages and being passionate to self-improve are also required, alongside expertise. Proving your talent is how to stand out from other potential employees at NashTech.

Are there any specific requirements for fresh graduates to work at NashTech?

Young people will be the next generation of NashTech’s employees. What we need from them is nothing more than their creativity, critical thinking, enthusiasm at work and teamwork. We are also proud of our Fresher and Direct Entry programs where young talents can be challenged and developed.

Finally, do you have any advice for young IT students?

“Success comes only to those who are patient.” And if you wish to work for multinational companies, you should be well-equipped with your language skills.

Thank you for the interview!

2. To be part of the global scale projects

The coders working at NashTech are surrounded by the opportunities to participate in large global-scale projects for international clients from America, England, Australia, etc. At NashTech, programing is no longer a job where a computer is the only companion, but also challenges you to collaborate with other members, who are from different parts of the world. The group will have nothing in common, but the code lines and ideas. A lot of NashTech people from different parts of the world involved in the project creating street-based screen-technology for American presidential election. Thus, communication skills and teamwork are what you can obtain at NashTech, to become a “Global Coder”.

3. To become a real “keyboard hero”

NashTech defines that a programmer’s duty is not to constantly sit, for eight hours a day, typing codes, but the true values creator is to make the world a better place. Sure, at NashTech, you are the “heroes” of programming languages in global projects to create impacts. NashTech has developed a 3G software for more than 20 million smartphone users to make calls via Internet. In the end, a computer is just a machine.

IT Girl and The Story of Travelling 17 Countries

Despite working in IT industry, Nguyen Thi Phong Ly can speak English as a native speaker and she is an avid Zumba dancer. Born in the 1980s, she travels abroad regularly to “go shopping”, loves trekking and has travelled in more than 17 countries.

Not like other IT girls, despite her ladylike appearance, Phong Ly is a pro in trekking. She has discovered and experienced the lifestyle and culture of 17 different countries, such as America, England, Egypt, Greece, Spain, Alaska and other wild lands. It is these trips that help Ly find new points of view for life and get a better understanding of cultures, helping her do better work in IT.

Having dreamt of being a tour guide, Phong Ly has found herself in the IT industry. Although she graduated from Information Technology Management and has been working in this field more than 15 years, she never regrets her decision to give up her ‘tour guide’ dream.

“When working at professional workplaces in IT companies, doing global projects, I have had many chances not only to learn and grow myself, but also to travel and experience different cultures”, Ly shares her opinions when working at NashTech.

From her first day at NashTech – an IT company and consulting business focusing on digital strategies, cloud based services and doing global projects, Ly has had the chance not only to challenge herself in different aspects in a professional company, but also to travel to UK and USA. NashTech is a part of Harvey Nash Group plc, and has offices in Vietnam and more than 8 other countries.

Phong Ly in her own trip

 

Phong Ly said, “I work at NashTech as a Business Analyst, bridging the clients to other areas of the company. I am in charge of the market in Europe and America, so I have a lot of chances to travel to countries in these areas. I have just come back after six months working in Seattle (USA).” Ly also shared that, if she were a tour guide, she would never have had opportunities to work at global companies as she does today.

Ly has been to the USA five times and to the UK four times. Each visit normally lasts around six months. Apart from the work, she loves trekking and has found that she still has time to discover wild lands of America, such as Alaska, Sequoia, Canyon, Rocky Mountain, Mountain Rainier and has spent time roaming the old towns of Europe.

During her time working in Vietnam, Phong Ly also has chances to “travel” every day when working with people having different cultural backgrounds in multi-national environment of NashTech.

 

“Travelling and IT are two of my passions”, Phuong Ly said

“NashTech offers me lots of opportunities to travel abroad, which helps expose me to new things. I can see myself growing up, seeing life, cultures and people in multi-points of view. It is the experiences that helps me work more efficiently with foreign clients. Only when we understand their cultures and languages do they see us as teammates, not service-providers”, the girl born in 1980s shared.

When asked whether Ly feels bored of the IT work, which is usually considered boring and colourless, Ly shakes her head. “Working in a global company and doing many different global projects, I can see myself being challenged and growing every day. That is the dream of every IT practitioner. Additionally, my colleagues are joyful and energetic. Contrary to the stereotypical image of coders – “big head with big nerdy glasses”, thanks to the international environment, we are very open-minded. It is not easy to find such a great place to work in this IT industry”, Ly shared.
