How we watch the reliability of content in our career database
The sources of info we use are selected based on these criteria to maximize reliability.
1- Government-provided information (like bls.gov).
2- Content offered by non-profit organizations.
3- Non-sponsored content (unless the only info or best info available happens to be sponsored, in which case we make sure it is clearly marked as sponsored).*
4- Content that appears highest in search engines and/or that is created based on reviews by students and users, I.e. content that is consulted most frequently by people and/or provided by renowned sites or organizations.
5- When available we share content from at least two resources to avoid bias, apart from books, where we limit ourselves to Amazon.com since they offer the largest selection.*
