As you prepare for your first Internship Interview, prepare yourself to answer questions put to you just as how well you have written out your resume. Show your ability to speak well and answer to the point and not go overboard.
It is not enough to just write a beautifully presented resume. You must be able to put your resume in words across the interviewer with much confidence. Speak about your skills and what you have accomplished which is the keynote to success of a good job interview.
Remember when going in for an interview dress accordingly and not go in as if you were attending a party. Pastel colors are cool and pleasing to the eye.
Greet and shake hands with your interviewer and sit when you are told to do so. Once the interviewer is finished with you shake hands and thank them for the opportunity given to you to meet you.
