For your convenience, Greenhouse Recruiting provides a default list of degrees that candidates can select from when applying for a job. Your organization can add new degrees and/or edit the existing entries on this list. In this article, we will cover how to add a new degree to this list of degrees so that it appears for candidates.

Click the Configure icon Configure.png in the upper right-hand corner. Select Custom Options from the left-hand panel, then click Candidates under the Company Custom Fields section. On the Custom Fields: Candidates page, click the Degree field to edit.


The Edit Candidate Field page will list all of the degrees in the Options field. Each degree is represented on its own line. Navigate down the list of default degrees and insert your custom degree in the appropriate position. 

Click Save when finished.

Your new custom degree will appear for candidates when applying for jobs.
