About the Author

Jon Gregory helps people to develop their job-search, application and interview skills so that they can follow career paths that will support them for the long haul, in today's volatile working environment.

His working life started as a car valet at the age of sixteen, cleaning the transport wax off brand new cars. He returned to school for his A levels, went on to university, became an engineer and then began to develop his career in management.

He worked successively in project management, operations management and general management before successfully running a market-leading subsidiary for a FTSE 100 public company through his mid-thirties.

To get there, Jon negotiated his way through a lot of tough interviews. Conversely, he also interviewed many candidates for key roles at the places where he worked. He's experienced both sides of the job-search fence and gained invaluable expertise, as a consequence.

He later founded his own business development consultancy and has since worked internationally with dozens of businesses. Fields of work have included: coaching and mentoring; career development; team development; recruitment training and change management, as well as international business development.

Jon has worked on three successful turnarounds, all involving significant re-organisation and people development. His main focus for the last two years has been on helping people to develop their careers in these challenging times. He has a particular interest in helping young people to get the jobs they want and build the careers they choose to aim at.

The creator of numerous guides, reports and websites over the years, this is Jon's first published book. With it, he is aiming to deliver hard-won, in-depth experience to people in a fast and easy-to-absorb way. He supports his writing with a blog at win-that-job.com and makes regular appearances as an expert panel member on live chats with the Guardian newspaper's online careers section.
