They seemed to care most about my office work experience and what that entailed. Try to be as detailed as possible when breaking down your duties; don't be afraid to say you did phones, copy-making, errand-running, or even coffee-fetching. You can't mention something too menial. The key with the interview is to appear friendly and willing. Don't get too worked up over the interview itself, it won't run longer than fifteen minutes. They're looking for somebody to be a jack of all trades, and a relatively eager one. Keep your energy up and just try to sound helpful.
