Before moving into writing, Jon was a help desk technician for an airplane parts manufacturer where he provided on-site and remote tech support for hundreds of employees across three locations. His work there involved handling all the help desk support tickets, which included upgrading computer hardware and software, troubleshooting why programs weren't working as they should, educating co-workers on how to use software, configuring phones and computers, managing license servers, and installing networking hardware.
