It is essential to be well-prepared both mentally and in a practical sense prior to attending an interview. Remember that an interview is basically an opportunity to sell a product — you! The packaging, that is, your appearance, is therefore very important, so give it due consideration. Your potential employer will form an impression of you from the way you look even before you say anything, and if you look smart and pleasant, it not only indicates that you are someone who possesses good presentation skills; it also shows that you want the job sufficiently to take the trouble necessary to secure it. Practical preparations for an interview include working out how you intend to travel to the interview and ensuring that you are clear about how long the journey is likely to take, making any wardrobe decisions, checking that all clothing is clean and ironed and gathering any literature that you may wish to take with you, such as relevant university projects.
