Be Prepared. Have a telephone answering machine or voice mail system in place and sign-up for a professional sounding email address
Be More Than Prepared. Always have an up-to-date resume ready to send - even if you are not currently looking for work.
Don't Wait. If you are laid-off, file for unemployment benefits right away
Get Help. Utilize free or inexpensive services that provide career counseling and job search assistance such as college career offices, state Department of Labor offices or your local public library.
Create Your Own Templates. Have copies of your resume and cover letter ready to edit.
Use Job Search Engines. Search the job search engines. Use the job search engine sites to search the major job banks, company sites, associations, and other sites with job postings for you.
Jobs by Email. Let the jobs come to you. Use job search agents to sign up and receive job listings by email. All the major job sites have search agents and some web sites specialize in sending announcements.
Time Savers. Strapped for time? Consider getting help writing or editing your resume. Resume posting services that post your resume to multiple job sites at once can save hours of data entry.

When having an interview, the applicant should have all the information that he/she can about the company. Be prepared for the questions that the interviewer might ask and sometimes there are tricky questions that test the ability of the applicant to think fast. Confidence can make the brain react faster.

Having an updated resume saved on your own cloud like google docs is one tip I can give. The most important I guess. This is to prepare you so you can send your resume right away if an employer asks you to.

Good God!

If people looking for a job havent got the common sense to "have an up to date resume ready to send to an employer right away" they are either not worth employing or not serious about finding a job.

It's like those people who need advice on writing a CV too.

They will end up with a CV exactly the same as all the others who don't know how to sell themselves!
