It doesn’t matter if you were an accomplished public speaker in college, or even captain of the debate team. Thinking you can “wing it” in a job interview is a bad idea.

Interviewers have seen every type of candidate imaginable, and they can spot someone who isn’t prepared. Take time to research the company and find out about their needs (specifically why they’re hiring), and then rehearse explanations of how you can fill those needs.

Don’t try to memorize specific answers; instead, gain a high level of familiarity with the job, the company and (most importantly) the details of your resume.

If the interviewer asks how your summer internship experience relates to their job opening and you don’t have a good answer lined up, you might as well go home.
