Here are some tips:
Research the company: Learn as much as possible about the company you are interviewing with, including its products/services, history, mission statement, and values. This will help you understand their culture and tailor your responses to their needs. Sometimes recruiters will ask about their organization's mission or services provided. Be prepared to answer these essential questions.
Review the job posting: Carefully read the job posting and make a list of the skills and qualifications required. Then, consider how your experience aligns with these requirements and prepare examples to demonstrate your abilities.

Bring a copy of your resume: Bring a printed document, a list of references, and any other materials the employer has previously requested.
Prepare questions to ask the interviewer: Prepare a list of questions to ask the interviewer about the company, the job, and the work environment. This will show that you are interested in the position and have done your research. Don't over-ask. Be considerate of the interviewer's time.
