What is the best way to prepare for an interview?
I made compilation of various answers from different people…. And here’s what they had to say:
The most important tip is to network; make as many friends as you can related to your field. Reach out to those people you felt comfortable around and shared good chemistry with. If you make a connection with someone in the company, the pressure to perform perfectly in the interview won't be as high. Interviewers know it's difficult to really know a person during an interview, so they are usually scanning for basic interpersonal skills. Show that you can work well with others, motivate yourself, and push through stressful situations calmly and efficiently. Try to have four or five stories about yourself from the past and try to redirect questions toward these stories during the interview. Make sure to choose instances from your past that highlight your positive qualities, including your ability to learn from or perform during difficult situations.
1) Be prepared. Make flash cards with the top interview questions with your answers on the back of the card. Practice over and over so you don't get stumped on these questions during the interview. 2) Resume. Bring a few copies of your resume - enough for you and your interviewer(s) to reference. 2) Ask questions. Don't be afraid to jot down questions you would like to ask on a notepad and bring it with you to the interview. 3) Arrive on time. Plan your route, figure out the parking situation, and account for traffic the night before. And leave plenty of wiggle room in case something comes up! This will save you a lot of stress the day of.

I always like to do as much research on the company as possible. I like to know as much as I can before I go into any conversation or interview. Once you've done the research and the prework for the interview, you just need to go in with confidence. The best interviews I have ever had I approached as just having a conversation with someone. It makes them feel relaxed and gives off a sense of confidence. Be confident but not cocky. And if you do not know an answer, don't try to make anything up. People look for qualities when hiring and not necessarily someone that knows everything. Show a willingness to learn
