Research the industry online prior to the interview. A Google news search using the name of the particular industry can turn up plenty of news articles on current developments in the industry. Also, consider speaking to anyone you might know who works in the industry you are interviewing for a job in, and consult industry-specific books and periodicals as well. Make sure you get a good handle on industry basics, like the main function of the industry, who it serves, where the industry currently is (business-wise), and where it's going.
You should also conduct online research on the most common interview questions you can expect for whatever industry you are interviewing in. For example, if you are interviewing for a job in the interior design industry, you could do a Google search with this search term: "common interior design job interview questions" or "interior design interview questions." Search terms like these should turn up articles that profile some of the most common interior design industry questions you can expect in an interview.
