The ideal students would be comfortable approaching businesses and speaking with professionals. They would provide the training specific to their company and would be willing to pay commission on any sales made as a part-time 1099 position.


Once the summer series begins in May, their greatest need will be for a Production Crew including lighting, sound, filming, and editing. In addition to the basic skills required in those positions, they would need individuals who are able to think on their feet, as wrestling is typically fast-paced and situations can change in an instant.


They may potentially have an on-air position available for a Color Commentator as well. The ideal person would already have knowledge of wrestling, be able to speak clearly and professionally, and carry an unscripted conversation with their existing Play-By-Play Commentator.


Because they plan to have their events shown on TV and the Internet, they have to be aware of copyrighted material, especially the wrestlers' entrance music. If students could create Custom Music for their athletes, that would be a great benefit.

If there are students learning ecommerce (such as an online storefront and/or internet pay-per-view episodes) that would be ideal, but not required.
