JobTarget provides your organization with access to over 25,000+ niche and wide-reaching job sites while getting recommendations of which sites are best to drive qualified applicants. Greenhouse Recruiting's integration with JobTarget allows your organization to push all live jobs from your job board into the JobTarget platform. In this article, we will cover how to:


Configure User Setup Permissions in Greenhouse Recruiting

The user with Site Admin level permissions should navigate to the Permissions panel on your user page and expand the Developer Permissions dropdown menu. 

Select Can manage ALL organization’s API Credentials so that a check is in the checkbox. When finished, click Save.



Generate Greenhouse Harvest API Key

To create a Harvest API key for the integration, click the Configure icon Configure.png in the upper right-hand corner. Navigate to Dev Center on the left-hand panel. From the Dev Center page, click API Credential Management.


From the API Credential Management page, click Create New API Key to generate the API key for JobTarget.
