Add New Discipline to Structured Education Field


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

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

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

Click the Configure icon configure.png in the upper right-hand corner and select Custom Options from the left-hand panel.


Click the Edit icon edit.png to the right of Discipline on the subsequent page.


The Edit Candidate Field dialog box will list all of the disciplines in the Options field. Each discipline is represented on its own line in alphabetical order.

Navigate down the list of disciplines and insert your custom discipline in the appropriate position.

Click Save when finished.


Note: Additionally, your organization can add Other as a discipline to represent any disciplines not listed in the options.

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