Thanks to everyone for your interest! 

 

@kallison04, @kbsmith, @Crysler_Scalres: A cover letter is not required, but if you choose to include one you will need to upload it as part of the same document as your resume.

 

@Rori3691, @calabria66, @KimVanderKley: The Letters of Recommendation will be asked for if you are chosen for an in-person interview. Although we recommend you begin gathering them now to reduce stress in the future, they are not required or asked for as part of the application process. 

 

@Asiar2k11: Once the position is live, you can find it at southwest.com/careers. You will click the position, then click apply!

 

@VRiggs: Today's date is February 5th.

I can totally relate to this story. The amazing service I have received over the years is why I openly share with people that I am a Southwest snob. I will ALWAYS choose southwest to get to my destination even if it means renting a car and driving a bit.  I have always wanted to be a flight attendant. I first applied to another airline (before my Southwest transformation) but then found out I was pregnant and did not want to be away from my baby so I gave up the dream. 

 

After winning my battle with cancer in 2013 I have decided that I can do anything and that time is precious so here I am 53 years old applying for a job that pays nearly half of what I make now but It is my dream and I can hope to make it to the interview process. A 1 in 200,000 shot is crazy but I will take it! I am a mammographer and in my current job I fight every day to do my best to make sure the women I image have the best shot at early detection. I also understand It is not always just about the mammogram. I have prayed with perfectly well women, cried with patients that have experienced a loss and so much more. I am regularly recognized for my patient care and I hold those recognitions dear to my heart on the rough days. I know I can bring that world class LUV to the skies if I get the chance.

 

So it is finally here 2/5. I have been checking since midnight ...nothing but crickets... the suspense is killing me. My resume is loaded. Hang in there fellow applicants. We can do this!
