Sharpen your pencils (further) with new Tooltips! ✏️

We have expanded our proactive Tooltips in our Smart Editor to help you further reduce the unintentional usage of words that may be perceived as insensitive or offensive.

For example, if your post includes “blue-collar workers” you will receive an alert prompting you to reconsider the usage as it may make candidates uncomfortable. Another example is shown below.
