How can we help you?


Jumpstart is an automated recruiting platform for engineering students. Jumpstart's machine learning algorithm recommends relevant students for your jobs and events to make sourcing a breeze. 

Greenhouse Recruiting's integration with Jumpstart allows users to source, access, and engage candidates from Jumpstart. In this article, we will cover how to:

Add Candidates to Greenhouse Recruiting with the Jumpstart Integration 

When a student replies to your message on Jumpstart, you can export the student into Greenhouse Recruiting as a candidate using the Export button within each conversation. 


Additionally, candidates can be exported into Greenhouse Recruiting from the list of pipeline students within each role.


During your export, you can select which job to export the candidates to in Greenhouse Recruiting. You can also export the student as a prospect if preferred. 


Once a student is exported, you can jump quickly to their candidate or prospect profile in Greenhouse Recruiting by clicking the View button (where the Export button was located prior to exporting the student). 

When a candidate is imported into your Greenhouse Recruiting instance via Jumpstart, their Source will be listed as Jumpstart. This makes tracking and reporting data very easy. 


In addition, you can see all actions taken on a candidate from the Activity Feed tab in Greenhouse Recruiting.
