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

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

  • 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 so it appears for candidates.

Click the Configure icon  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 Discipline field to edit.

The Edit Candidate Field page will list all of the disciplines in the Options field. Each discipline is represented on its own line. Navigate down the list of default 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.
