An interview can be likened to an audition or a final exam. Meeting an employer face to face is your audition for the job. Just as a performer must prepare for a performance, you must also rehearse for your appearance. In addition, just as you would never walk in to a final exam without having studied the course material, so you should never show up for an interview without proper preparation.
