This is a tough question to answer because every interview is going to be different. I would always be prepared to answer questions about your work experience and background in detail. You should also be able to articulate why you want the position and why you are interested in the company. You should be able to demonstrate you are passionate about both. For most entry-level positions, I would always be prepared to answer behavioral based questions such as "Tell me about a time when..." These behavioral based questions are typically to gauge how you would handle a situation or how you interact with others. When preparing for an interview, try to think of examples from a time when you encountered an upset customer, handled a project or task with little to no direction, worked with a difficult co-worker, held a leadership position in a group, etc. Some companies include a case study component to the interview to better understand your technical and critical thinking abilities. In my experience, this is not as common but a recruiter could provide insight into if you should prepare for this or not.
