I had one memorable Skype interview for a job at a SLAC where they had two undergraduate students on the search committee. The interview itself was very unstructured with people jumping in to ask a bunch of unplanned questions - including students. They were all very nice and lovely, and I got a fly out. But it was definitely a "think on your feet" interview. This could totally be just something unique to that department, though.

Show that you're a creative and enthusiastic teacher, make your work seem of interest to non-specialists (I don't care if you're a star or not--make your work sound interesting), and demonstrate that you know the basics of the school you're interviewing with.
