Take the morning off work so that you can to do some research and preparation. Also give yourself enough time to commute so that you aren’t flustered when you arrive!

Make connections

Use your skills and qualities
Make sure to communicate the fact that you are thoughtful, considered and engaged.

Small talk
Employers look for candidates that will engage well with others. Figuring out some topics of conversation will help you if your mind goes blank.
