Intricacies of Interviews in Malaysia

Interviews requires a certain amount of skills & techniques. Lots of references out there will discuss most of those skills & techniques. However, when conducting interviews in Malaysia, there are some other matters that needs ‘extra’ consideration.

I personally think, in Malaysia most of the time when you are given the interview appointment, you are halfway there in your data collection. Once the appointment is given, most informants will not be holding back. They would usually share with you all the information you required from them.

But to get the consent to be interviewed is another story altogether. A lot depends on who the informants are or more specifically who they worked with.
