Ms. Trang Pham | Commercial Planning Department – HCMC, she shared that “Maersk provides a variety of international career opportunities for those who are keen to explore. Our well-designed personal development plan empowers the employee to think of where we want to be in the next 3-5 years. Basis that, we can have an open discussion with our manager & get good career advice and guidance from them. I am moving to an exciting new international role, and my advice to my future colleagues is, “Don’t limit yourself with what you’re doing now. Initially, it might seem like a difficult decision to step out of your comfort zone, however, you will never know if you don’t try it.”
Ms. Tram Ngo | Area Finance Controller - After having spent thirteen years in product and commercial functions at Maersk, I wanted to step out of my comfort zone and explore a new field. Maersk follows a very effective talent development process, which empowers employees to take charge of their career. This helped me to plan a career transition to finance, as a result, I am now the Area Financial Controller. It has been an exciting start to this new journey and my learning curve is on a sharp rise. I have experienced here that the important thing is not being afraid to take a chance.
