Interviewing Essay

Interview conducted at ITB campus environment, precisely at the Department of Industrial Engineering. Informant works as a systems analyst at the project of PT LETMI ITB named Alfie Novriansyah Zairul. With unmarried status, the subject is not too concern with appearances, especially in terms of buying clothes, but do not leave the side of a neat and clean for his style dresses. The salary from systems analyst who helped the project in ITB is not too high compare with ITB graduates who work in big companies at Jakarta or other countries, but the subject is still set aside funds each month to buy cloth. From his salary each month, he spent 3% set aside for clothing. He bought the clothes that are long lasting mode so he can use it in a long term and suitable for all emerging fashion, clothes that are purchased are also tailored to the personality, he never looked for the trend at that time. Once asked in more detail, the costs that he spent each month around Rp 100, 000,-. Then be checked by the method triangulation, salary earned each month around Rp 3.000.000, – and it is in accordance with the state of a resources.

According to the perception of the interviewer, there are some successes and failures that occurred during the interview. Because of the subject had the nearly same age with the interviewer, and then it can be said that interview conducted smoothly and get all the information according to the questions posed. Another success is obtain when the subject is not shy or angry in saying the amount of income each month and also the amount of money used to buy clothes. Apart from the success that has been presented, the perceived failure while doing the interview is an interview time that is quite long compared with the number of questions asked. Subject much more tell a lot of things out from the questions that the interviewer asked. The interviewer should be resumed the point of the answer from the subject.

From the interviewed that has been make up some ideas for other research that can be done in the future. One is about the difference in expenditures incurred by the worker in ITB compare to the ITB students. The objective of this study is seeing whether people who earn more spend their own money for clothes or vice versa. Other research on the financial regulatory system in the lives of the interviewees, if they do like saving, saving for do have fun, saving for buy clothes, and so on. The objective of this study is seeing how the financial structure system that is owned by people who were interviewed, with it we can see who are people that looking at his future and who are not really care of make attention to the future.

Beside the specific research information, I can obtain some interesting information that I learnt about consumer pattern. The consumer followed the fashion style of the family. If the family is not too concerned with fashion in their daily life, then the consumer is not too much to buy clothes every month. Another case when they come from the family that concerned to look appropriate with the existing trend, the cycles of buying clothes every month is very high. In addition, it is influenced by financial or family-establishment level and the consumer is not too concerned with their personal financial system.
