Hear from some of our College Hire Technology Associates:

 "My Leader has been extremely patient and helpful as I’ve onboarded onto the Team. We have weekly one-on-one meetings to ensure that I’m getting any assistance needed. Not only that, as I work between two pods, everyone I’ve worked with is willing to step in any time I have a question. They’ve helped me to fully understand that no question is a dumb question.

Also, it’s been so rewarding to be a part of the Team as we migrate our data and processes from on-premises to the cloud. In the short three months that I’ve been a part of the Team, I can see how far this project has come and I’m so excited play a part as it continues!"

Associate Software Engineer
"The CHIP Program has completely defined the start of my career by providing me with the resources to acclimate to my first full time job out of college with a class of recent college grads in the same phase of life. It’s provided me the opportunity to feel the Southwest Culture through various events, as well as support from Coworkers within the program and its Leaders. The CHIP program community gives me confidence in my career as well as friends that will last a lifetime. I’m so grateful I was recruited to join this amazing Company."
— Anna,
Associate Analyst
“I've been at Southwest since 2019, and had the pleasure of working in Air Operations where I’ve met some of the most amazing folks. With the help of CHIP I’ve been able to not only meet, but connect with other wonderful People. I’ve also received opportunities to strengthen our diversity efforts by being part of the diversity committee for CHIP! Diversity is a big part of my life, and I’m very thankful CHIP allowed me to contribute toward this effort.”
