About Southwest Airlines Campus Reach Internship Program

The Campus Reach program identifies and engages future Southwest Employees at an early age, hopefully inspiring an interest in a career in aviation! Campus Reach's efforts include: high school internships and partnerships, a nationally-recognized college internship program, direct hiring opportunities for new college graduates, and an MBA internship to bring talented individuals into more strategic roles within the Company.

Interns at Southwest will not only get hands-on business experience in their particular field, they will also get to experience the Fun-LUVing Culture that makes Southwest Airlines home to some of the most highly sought after internships year after year.

College Internships are offered in the spring, summer, and fall semesters for fulltime college students and are usually 12-15 weeks long. Participating departments may vary by semester, but all internships are based at our Headquarters in Dallas, Texas. All positions are paid and include space available travel. An internship with Southwest is more than just a job--it's an opportunity of a lifetime!

In 2015, we had 311 college Interns onboard with us from 104 different universities and 36 different states. These Interns were selected from over 25,000 resumes, so it's definitely a competitive program!
