In partnership with the Microsoft Software and Systems Academy (MSSA), Southwest actively supports the transition of military veterans from active duty and reserves to careers in our Technology Department. Throughout the years, dozens of Southwest Warrior Hires have successfully transitioned and received the full support of technical and career skill training, along with a "battle buddy" from a previous class, a transition mentor, and direct guidance from the Warrior Hire Steering Committee.
“You won’t find a closer family of veterans anywhere in the workforce than Southwest’s Warrior Hire program, which is comprised of every branch of service. Someone is always willing to help whenever you have a question or need support, and that’s the contagious Culture at Southwest.”
