Identify your Role in the Company
Have a clear knowledge of the role you are going to serve in the company. There are various roles in Data Sciences. Acquire knowledge of those and identify yours in that. Every role in Data Science requires specialty in some skills. You need to identify your area and the skillset that the role demands from you.

Know about the Company
Before going for any interview do thorough research about the company, its product, its services, its organizational structure, the type of candidate it is seeking for and the software or tools that it uses for Data Science. Companies differ in the roles and responsibilities they are seeking for in the candidate. From everything small to everything large you should have a familiarity with the organizational need.
Sharpen your Skills
Skillset is all that you are carrying with you while going to the company. Make sure you have the latest and updated tools required for your role in your skillset. The other end is going to judge you on that part. Leave no column for loopholes. Take help from different trusted online platforms like Coursera. Learn from the good books, go through various data Science projects or start your internship before going for a Job. Your task in hand is to sharpen your skills and give the best choice to the interviewer.
Go with an Intention to serve
Interviews obviously put many expectations on you regarding career, money, and growth. Make sure these things do not overburden you that you become overwhelmed with your feelings and become loose on the service that is expected to you by the organization. The company is unknown to your personal expectations. Even if the job matters so much to you the panel is going to select you on the basis of whether you are well fit for the job or not. It is going to be unbiased on that respect. Go with a clear mind and go with an intention to serve.
Learn from every Interview
This is the point that I personally do not want you to face. I hope you clear on your first attempt only. But even if your hard luck is surrounding you and you do not clear in 4, 5 attempts or in greater attempts do try to learn from every of your interview. Learn from every panel the questions it is asking and practice those for your upcoming interviews. Chances are they could repeat in your next chance and even if they do not repeat they will add to your knowledge and boost your confidence for your upcoming Interviews.
