How to Apply

Application Process

All students must apply online ( during the application period, which is usually six months before the start of the internship. A resume is all that is needed at the time you apply, but you may be contacted for additional information in the future.

If you are selected from the resume review, a Recruiter will contact you for a phone interview. The next step is an interview at our Headquarters in Dallas. For this interview you will need your college transcripts, your "Why Southwest" essay, and two letters of recommendation. After an in-person interview, you will hear back if you were selected for the internship or not within two to three weeks. The whole selection process can take several months from the time you apply, but all applicants will be contacted either via phone or email once decisions have been made.

Applicants must be fulltime college students as defined by your university (or taking the last of your required classes to graduate) to be eligible for our internships. Most of the positions also require that students are classified at a minimum of junior level (60+ hours), although some positions also allow sophomores to apply. Graduate students who are fulltime (as designated by your school) are also eligible for most of the internships, but please check the specific job descriptions for requirements.

Recent college graduates are eligible only for the semester immediately following graduation. (May graduates are eligible for Summer Internships; August graduates are eligible for Fall Internships; December graduates are eligible for Spring Internships.) If you have already graduated and are no longer eligible for our internships, please check for fulltime opportunities.
