Mark Your Calendars: The Campus Reach Kicks off Fall Campus Recruiting!


Are you a college student looking for an internship or full-time career? If so, the Campus Reach Team would love to chat with YOU as we travel to university campuses across the country this fall.


Check out the map to see where and when the Campus Reach Team (and other Southwest Employees!) will be on campus and mark your calendars! While the below map only covers our September visits, make sure to check back on Community and our Campus Reach Facebook page in a few weeks to see our October calendar of events. We will continue promoting our opportunities over the next several months—and then again in the spring of 2018.
