Bill Power
Club chairman Bill also had considerable success over the summer months picking up three gold medals, one bronze medal, six honourable mentions and 56 acceptances in competitions in the UK, India, Serbia, Macedonia, France, Germany, Ukraine and Scotland.

His run of success began in May when two images, ‘The Original Gannets in Love’ and ‘Light Above the Crossroads’ won FIAP Honourable Mentions in the Salon Mondial d’Art (Esch) salon in Luxembourg.  Soon afterwards, his image ‘Ivory on the Laneway’ was one of only 202 images accepted for exhibition by the prestigious Edinburgh International Exhibition of Photography.

Those success were followed shortly afterwards by a Bronze Medal in the PFM International Digital Salon in India for ‘Time to See’.  The same image also won a salon Honourable Mention in Perspective Two in India.

Bill’s first major medal of the summer came in the Artphoto Gallery Salon 2014 in Bosnia Herzegovina where he won a Salon Gold Medal for ‘Ivory on the Laneway’.

The Cakovec competition in Serbia was to provide most wins in a salon for Bill where he was awarded a UPI Gold Medal for ‘The Original Gannets in Love’, a FIAP Bronze Medal for ‘I Awake’, and four FIAP Honourable Mentions for ‘Time to See,’ ‘Heavenly Wish,’ ‘Light Above the Crossroads’ and ‘Revealing’.

Bill feels however that his most important award of the summer was in the South Devon Salon, UK, were his image ‘Sulphur Tuft’ was awarded a FIAP Gold Medal.

Porchfield: あなたは在宅ワーク向き?在宅ワークをするために必要な資質

§ August 30th, 2014

「会社組織に縛られず、自由に仕事をしたい」誰でも一度は考えたことがあるのではないでしょうか?、実際、自宅にいながらフリーランスとして働いている方も大勢いらっしゃいます。仕事内容もデータ入力、ライティング、翻訳、CADトレスと、さまざまな求人があり、何か特技がある人ならば、すぐにでも始められる印象も受けます。

けれど、本当に誰もが在宅ワーカーになれるのでしょうか?在宅ワークを始めてみようと思ったら自分のスキル以外に、自分の性格や資質も在宅ワーク向きか、ちょっと考えてみましょう。

まず、与えられた仕事は最後までやり遂げるという気持ちを持っていますか?在宅ワークは簡単そうですが、趣味の延長ではなく仕事です。趣味でブログを書くならば、あきてしまったら途中でやめられますが、ライティングの仕事としてならそうはいきません。仕事をしょっちゅう投げ出すような人に依頼をしたいとは思いませよね?自分自身が個人事業主であるという意識を持ち、クライアントと誠実に向き合う姿勢が大切です。

次に、自己管理はしっかりできているでしょうか?在宅ワークならば会社勤めのように、決められた時間に縛られて仕事をする必要はありません。「いつ起きて、いつ寝るかも自由!朝早く起きる必要がないなんて、こんないい仕事はない!」と、考えている方はちょっと待ってください!会社に勤めているならば、毎日何時から何時までは仕事をしなければならないという制約はあります。しかし別の見方をすれば、仕事をする時間は会社側が決めてくれているということです。在宅ワークをするとなれば、自分の好きな時間に仕事をすることができますが、依頼された仕事が期日に間に合うよう自分でスケジューリングをしなければいけません。起床時間も就寝時間もまちまちでダラダラした生活では、仕事をこなすことは難しいでしょう。一日のスケジュールを自分できちんと管理できる能力が、在宅ワークをするには大切だといえそうです。

以上が、在宅ワークに向いている資質です。求人情報を見る前に、自分が本当に自宅でできる仕事在宅ワークに向いているか、もう一度考えてみてはどうでしょうか?
