Make sure you have done your research on the company. What do they do? What are some of their biggest accomplishments? What are they working on right now?

Formulate a couple of questions that will show you have done your homework. Slip in a reference to something you saw on their website.

Everyone says you can’t really prepare for interviews, but that’s a lie. An interview will always run more smoothly when you are well prepared. As the PP mentioned, do your research on the company, and really think about what you can contribute to the company. Think about the skills you have which would suit the specific job. Think about what draws you to that specific company. Knowing what sets them apart from their competitors is vital.

Next, think about answers to potential questions relating to your strengths, weaknesses, failures, people skills, what motivates you, etc. Preparing for these standard questions will build your confidence.

Lastly, be aware of how you dress (professional suit, it’s always better to over-dress than under-dress), and how you behave. Firm handshake, eye contact, don’t talk too much, dont fidget and importantly ask 2 to 3 well thought out and intelligent questions about the job you are applying for.

Good luck!

Prepare, and don’t view it as an interrogation but as a conversation.  Make sure you have questions prepared and that you know as much as you can about the company and the position.  Smile, be well dressed, don’t use canned answers. 

Also, maybe have a back up position as well but stress your interest in the first.
