How to Apply

Application Process

All applicants must apply online (www.southwest.com/careers)  during the application period, which is usually six months before the start of the internship. A resume is all you need to apply, but you may be contacted for additional information in the future.

We're fortunate to receive hundreds of amazing applications, so the resume review process typically takes four-six weeks from the time the application period closes. Then, we can begin conducting interviews. We'll reach out to you by phone or email for each position you apply for. We appreciate your patience while we make our selections.
