Emerging Leadership Development Program

New Arrival

Good morning to all and hope y'all are having a great start to 2019.


I wanted to know if there is any information about when Southwest is opening applications for the Emerging Leadership Development Program. I want to apply and hopefully begin my career at one of the best places to have a life-long career. I am saddened by the passing of Mr. Kelleher but he left an amazing legacy that I admire and hope to be part of in the near future.


Thank you in advance for the information.

Hello @ed2david15. I have applied for this position in the past, and I think this would be a great learning experince and awesome opportunity to start a new career. My dashboard does mention their is an opening January 27th through Febuary  something. I don't know how accurate this is, since I have not seen it posted here from a member of SWA, but I have it marked on my calander and I will log in to see if its there. @KelbyTansey do you know if this program is openning back up?


Best of luck to you.
