This one didn’t jump out at me when I reviewed the image. Will you do better than I did?

I post these challenges to raise awareness of the importance of proofreading.

    I’d also say that you need to break up the sentence “Our recruiters…aspirations.” The first part before the comma is correct. The comma after the word “advocates” makes that part of the sentence “dangle”. In other words, “who get to know you beyond…aspirations” could not stand alone as a sentence. I’d suggest ending the sentence after the word “advocates” and starting the next sentence with “They get to know you…” Seems that we like to write American English as we speak it.
