    InterMat: I've been covering wrestling in northeast Ohio for the past four years and am interested in the position. I have most of the qualifications, but my experience with Dreamweaver is rather limited. How much of a drawback will that be?

    If this job wasn't in PA I'd be all over it in a heartbeat.

    Any reason why you're saying that, SE? Manheim is a nice little town -- very small -- and Lancaster, Harrisburg and even Philly (hour-plus) aren't that far away.

    Nothing against the job. Just that I'm too far from PA and not in the position to move family that far. Otherwise, I'd love to do wrestling work. Right down my alley.

    My experience with Dreamweaver was limited initially as well, but it's not crazy dynamic stuff, just building pages within existing stylesheets, etc. It's also a PR job too, so there's press releases about the company as well that need to be written along with actual coverage.

    I currently live in Lancaster and make the 10 mile commute to Manheim. Harrisburg is about 30 minutes from the office.

    I have most of the qualifications, except for one glaring thing: No degree.

    That automatically eliminates me, I guess, but I'd love to get something like this. Have been covering wrestling in SE/Central Kentucky for five years now and love the sport.

    Why not apply? The worst they can say is 'no'.

    Oregon's AD didn't have a degree -- it wasn't in the job requirement.
    Oregon's VOLUNTEER assistant wrestling coach had to have a degree -- it was mandatory.


    So yes, Kilkenny sucks.
