It’s always a good idea to prepare before an interview. Along with researching the company, the position you are applying for and (if possible) the hiring manager, it’s wise to research yourself. Interview yourself by asking the common questions, ask a friend to quiz you or sit in front of a mirror. If you take the time to have answers in mind before you walk through the door, you will present better and increase your chances of landing the job. It is also advised to have at least one interesting short story to tell, that provides insight into you as a person.
