The way I prepare fore interviews is to develop a "story bank." These examples should be in your resume, and in the interview be prepared to elaborate...
Interviews will often have "tell me about a time when ___ " type questions. Write out beforehand a few scenarios that could potentially fit those types of questions. And if you don't have an experience that fits their question, it's totally acceptable to say something like, "While I don't have an example of an experience like that, if I did, I would do [x,y,x]."
So when one of these questions comes out, just pull out a story from the bank - it's even possible to tell a story from the bank if it's not related to the question being asked.
I'm telling you the truth...
When you're working on your job and others seem to be "cutting corners" so-to-speak.
No. #1. BE DIFFERENT: "Always give your best" and the heck with the rest, then everything else will fall-in-place.
Believe and Achieve.
I Believe You Can...!

Show, don't tell.
I've reviewed close to 300 resumes, and I can't tell you how many times I see phrases like "hard-worker" or "tech savvy" on a resume, listed under their Skills section.
In my opinion, your skills should be things you can back up with a credential of some sort (degree, cert, etc). How you present yourself in an interview, and how you describe your experiences, should tell me all I need to know about your work ethic, or how comfortable you are with technology.
