Greenhouse Recruiting's structured education fields functionality allows your organization to capture a candidate's relevant education history in a uniform format. By capturing a candidate's education history in a structured format, your organization can more easily and effectively search your candidate database by these criteria.

Greenhouse Recruiting's structured education fields are comprised of the following fields:

School Name Start Year End Year
Degree Start Month End Month
Discipline    

In this article, we will cover how to configure the structured education fields on an existing job post.

Note: The configuration process for structured education fields is also applicable to users who are are creating new job posts for existing jobs and/or creating job posts as part of a new job configuration.

Click the All Jobs tab from the navigation bar and select a job from the subsequent list.

Navigate down the Edit Your Job Post page to the Basic Application Information panel. Under the Education section, toggle the settings of the 7 structured education fields to either:

 Required Education field will be visible and will require a value before the candidate can successfully apply or be added to a job.
 Optional Education field will be visible but will not need a value before the candidate can successfully apply or be added to a job.
 Hidden Education field will be hidden from the candidate and/or user adding a candidate to a job.

Note: Available settings for the Start Month and End Month structured education fields will follow the configuration of Start Year and End Year, respectively (i.e. you cannot make Start Month required and Start Year optional).
