First thread post!

I'm getting my paperwork prepared to apply at Southwest in August. I'm probably overthinking this, but does anyone know if they like to see a cover letter along with the resume? Also, any details about either document anyone would to share would be great. Thanks in advance.

My interview prep folks (Corporate Career Takeoff) seemed pretty adamant about having a cover letter and were prepared to help me write one.

I ended up not doing it (interview came quicker than anticipated).

Still got hired.

No, the computer selects interview candidates. Don't waste your time.
