Our Editorial Quality Lifecycle

At Zety, we’re dedicated to creating content that is always trustworthy, accurate, and up-to-date. Each piece published on our website has been crafted according to a stringent content creation and revision process:

1. Research

Zety’s content team closely follows the latest HR trends, industry changes, and job hunt queries to find new topics to help readers like you. Once a topic is assigned to a writer, they dive deeper to find labour market data and conduct research on the subject. We rely on authoritative sources, including government departments, academic research, and industry reports to ensure that each content piece we write for you is credible and comprehensive.

2. Writing

Zety’s writers are wordsmiths. While creativity flows, our internal guidelines ascertain that each content piece is informative and captivating. We want to provide you with precise, helpful, and inclusive information—but we also strive to make it pleasant and fun to read. We always prioritise real talk over elaborate language.

3. Quality Check

Each article is reviewed by one of our experienced editors to guarantee that it features actionable advice that can help you get the job you want. We focus not only on language quality but also on fact-checking the information featured in each guide—all to ensure that you can trust us.

4. Publishing

The content team collaborates with other experts who manage publishing activities. They’re responsible for ensuring the best user experience for the readers of Zety’s career blog. After a new article is published, we also perform a second round of quality checking to see it from the reader’s perspective.

5. Revisions

Our content team routinely reviews published articles in order to maintain their relevance and accuracy. After updating, each article is date-stamped, so the readers can be sure that the information in the guide is current and trustworthy.
