On that same breathe, be sure to have a comprehensive grasp of the position you are applying for, the job description. The goal is to ensure that you can articulate and explain what it is that you do, what makes you stand out, and hence selling them on why they should hire you.
This is difficult particularly if you haven’t been to several interviews before. So have a pen and paper, go through your portfolio, and remind yourself why you are awesome. Jot those down and sell yourself to the idea of having you as their best candidate. Practice in the mirror the usual questions also helps with the jitters.
