I would simply anticipate the questions they might ask you and mentally prepare yourself that way. It is hard to know what sorts of questions they might ask.

i am pretty sure you know what kind of job you are applying and i guess a good anticipation on some related questions would help. but first off, clear your mind from other stuff that would give you worries. then try to read some stuff about the position and correlate it with some interview questions. =)

I hate it when that happens. I'll make a script now just in case. I am not very good with impromptu speech. I'll get tongue-tied or my mind just go blank. But if it will happen, I'll try to relax first then think of all the common questions that will be asked during interviews. I'll make a quick research about the company/institution that called me.

One can get very excited and feel tense when going for an interview. That is the first thing to do to prepare mentally - relax and stay calm. If you had applied for the job, you know the company, and what they are doing. Study a bit more and find some details about it. And, find out what the duties are of the person in the position you are applying for. And, when taking the interview, if there is some thing you don't know, just be honest and say you don't know. The interviewer would appreciate that.

Firstly I would go online and read as much as I could from the company so that if asked why I am applying with the company and or why I think I would be an asset to the company I can reply with valid positive points about the company. Secondly I would get plenty of rest so that I can be attentive to the interviewer while sitting there in anticipation. Lastly I would recall my objectives and why I need the job and try really hard to be calm and collective the day of the interview.
