Our Editorial Principles

Our Editorial Quality Lifecycle

At Zety, we’re committed to writing always reliable, precise, and up-to-date content. Each article published on our website undergoes a stringent content creation and revision process:

Zety Editorial Guidelines

1. Research

Zety’s content team follows the latest HR trends, industry developments, and job search queries to uncover new topics that could help readers like you. When a topic is assigned to a writer, they dig deeper to acquire labour market data and conduct research on this subject. We use reliable sources, including government departments, academic research, and industry reports to ensure each piece of content we create for you is trustworthy and extensive.

2. Writing

Zety’s writers are wordsmiths. While creativity flourishes, our internal guidelines make sure that each content piece is engaging and informative. We aim to offer accurate, helpful, and inclusive information, but we also want to make it enjoyable for the reader. We put real talk above overly elaborate language.

3. Quality Check

All articles are reviewed by one of our experienced editors to ascertain that they include actionable advice to support you in getting your dream job. We focus not only on the quality of the language but also on fact-checking the information provided in each guide—all to make sure you can trust us.

4. Publishing

Our content team collaborates with other experts who publish the articles on our career blog. They’re responsible for delivering the best user experience for Zety’s readers. When a new article is published, we conduct a second round of quality checking to view it from the reader’s perspective.

5. Revisions

The content team routinely reviews published articles to keep them relevant and accurate. After the update, each article is date-stamped so the readers know that the information featured in the guide is up-to-date and reliable.

Sign of Excellence

Zety's career advice and expert insights have been recognised by over 200 universities, organisations, and prominent media outlets worldwide, including Maryville University, Santa Clara University, Allegany College of Maryland, University of Rochester, Forbes, The Financial Times, HuffPost UK, Career Builder, and Life Hacker.
