Abstract: The article discusses the mock interviews conducted among student members of the Academic Cultural Enrichment (ACE) Scholars cohort at the University of North Carolina-Greensboro (UNCG). The interviews are divided into two phases, the first of which consisted of simulated telephone interviews and the second consisted of a simulate search committee interview. Students were requested to submit a completed application package to allow review of cover letters and resumes they will submit to actual employers. According to the authors, the activity has provided a positive learning experience for librarians and students.
