    Well, in that case, it sounds like it would be pretty relaxed. You should just be yourself, confident and friendly. Smile, make eye-contact and make sure you know details of your resume well, in case they ask. That's about it! There's nothing specific to being successful at an general interview, just a few key points

    Hope that helps!

    Trust me, people like it when you blag. Especially in an interview. It shows you're quick on your feet. That's what people want.

    Preparation is key. Demonstrate you know and have done research about the role/company. also ask lots of (relevant) questions. This shows you are truly enthusiastic about the role and keen to learn more.

    Yup, makes sense. My guess is professional interviews are more formal than otherwise. So, if this is just a temporary job mainly for the paycheck, it would be a fairly informal and relaxed interview. So there's no need to worry, you'll probably just get asked questions on your character and your resume.

    I'm sure you know this already, but make sure you have answers to general interview questions that relate to this particular job.

    Good luck!

    Edit: As ketoali said, formulating questions and asking them at the end really shows enthusiasm for the position.

    In the case of such a position, probably very simple things.

    - Why you'd like to work there.
    - Whether you have experience in such a position/field.
    - Why you think you'd be a good fit. etc.

    If the interviewer offers sex then accept it. That is what my employers do to see how far the interviewee's are willing to go to kiss managers asses.
