I think to have a successful interview you have to be well-prepared. Firstly, make sure your CV fits perfectly to the requirements of the position. Your CV must be presented in a professional way. Next, learn as much as possible information that you can find on the company's website (maybe you can find out who will interview you). Finally, the outfit is important. You can impress the interviewers at the first sight.

I would investigate about the company I will apply for and revise the topics shown in the vacant. I would simulate some possible questions that the interviewer would ask to me and prepare the best answer. I would take care about my bed-time and the hours I sleep, my feeding and my environment to keep me as relaxed as possible.

I think I should take a couple of courses about job interviews to learn how to prepare for them and refresh my knowledge. Also, I'll try to sleep well before the interview, keep my clothes well-maintained, and tune myself into achieving good results.
