Landed the Interview, How Do I Close the Deal?

Dear Experts, I've been job hunting for several months and recently landed an in-person interview. After breaking into a new career, I have roughly 2 yrs experience to offer. I received a Facebook friend's reference to a potential hiring contact. Having a common friend, I called the manager to introduce myself. He asked for my resume.
