How do I prepare a CV?

You need to ensure it represents all your experience in a clear and concise manner. Put time into getting the CV right, you may need to find professional help on this.

How Should I Best prepare for a client interview?

Preparation for any interview is vital. As a candidate you must know your CV well, no hesitation on dates etc.. as not knowing your CV will give the employer the impression that you have not (a) prepared your own CV (b) have fabricated some areas on the CV. You must read the job specification carefully and ensure you have the experience readily available in your head where you have demonstrated you can carry out particular tasks. And finally, research the company, the Interviewer will expect you will have done this, not doing research will give the impression that you are not overly interested in the role.
