As somebody who DOES interviews for a tech firm let me give you an advice. I do the first round of interviews to weed out people who are completely wrong, and send "maybe" and "yes" lists to the Boss who makes the final decision. Maybe means "they can do the job, but not a great fit for us" and yes means "I like this one, pick this one" but Boss has the final say.

1: Coming in looking like a hobo, dirty and stinky will get you out of running. Wearing a suit will more likely put you on the "maybe list", we are a tech firm not a law office. Wear something clean, tidy and casual. Shirt with a math joke on helps.

2: Its 21st century and we are a tech firm. Bring your resume on a usb stick. Or better yet send it to me by email, so I have time to flip through it before we talk.

3: Absolutely do not embellish skills. Seriously, if you can't do what you told us you can you are out on your ass during the trial week, and we will never consider you again.

4: Real internships are easily checked. If you make one up its obvious. It sends you directly to the "no list".

5: Do laugh at the joke, everyone likes to think of themselves funny.

If you get the Interview you're most likely getting the job if it's entry, Except for me I applied at a grocery store and a few things happened

The Interviewer had a limp handshake
His First Comment was "Oh you're white"
Last was "We wouldn't like a "Normal person" to work here we like Diversity"

I agree with you on most levels. Lies can - and will - be spotted, and it just makes you look like a jerk.
Using buzzwords, clich├ęs and long strains of adjectives to describe yourself will usually get you nowhere.

What's worked for me is being confident, but not cocky; well dressed, but not too much a clean shirt + jeans has worked so far ; being honest, but still focusing on positives, as well as turning potential negatives into positives.
