If you are out of work or are looking for another job, here are some things to consider before a job interview:

Study the company's website, and, if possible, its annual report. Familiarize yourself with the company's mission, strategies, and goals. Be able to explain persuasively why you want to work there and why you would be an asset to the company.

Treat your resume as your first job assignment. Use it to put your best foot forward.

Keep samples of your work, letters from satisfied customers, positive performance appraisals, and letters of recommendation. Submit them with your resume.

Dress carefully. Smile. Look the interviewer in the eye. Be enthusiastic, confident, and upbeat. Do not say anything negative about anyone or anything.

Finally, be prepared to talk about your strengths and weaknesses. But, be careful what you say about your weaknesses.
