Next week I will have the privilege of being flown to Dallas for an interview at Southwest Airlines for the "Flight Operations Publications" internship for this summer. I am very excited about this opportunity, however, one thing that I have working against me is that I have not yet had a Technical Writing class.
My questions are to those who work at Southwest and may seem trivial and stupid, but they are important to me.
How should I dress for this (shirt and tie, or jeans and a golf shirt? I know they have casual dress, but I have to make a good first impression)
What are some things that I should know regarding this tech. ops. pubs. position before going into the interview (some inner workings in the department perhaps)
What are they looking for in a candidate? (I have always heard "hire for attitude and train for skill". Does that still apply to an intern?)
If you want to respond, but don't want everybody to read what you have to say, you are welcome to email me.
