The best way to prepare for an interview (in addition to being physically ready with outfit and appropriate “interview space”) is to take a good look at the methods of interviewing that you must be prepared for. Look at the Star Method of interviewing and come up with a few scenarios that you can have at your fingertips. https://www.hbcucareers.com/blog/the-star-method-of-interviewing-be-a-star-on-your-interview.

Good Luck!
