Configure User Setup Permissions in Greenhouse Recruiting

Have the user with Site Admin level permissions edit your user account's permissions by navigating to the Configure icon   > Users > Your Name)


The user with Site Admin level permissions should navigate to the Permissions panel on your user page and expand the Developer Permissions dropdown menu. 

Select Can manage ALL organization’s API Credentials so that a check is in the checkbox. When finished, click Save.

Repeat as necessary for any other user that should have access to set up the integration.

Your Harvest API key for the Greenhouse/Jumpstart integration is created and configured. Provide your Harvest API key to your Jumpstart onboarding team so they can set up the integration.

Add Candidates to Greenhouse

When students reply to your message on Jumpstart, you can export them into Greenhouse Recruiting. This can be done via 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 may also export the candidate as a prospect, if you prefer.

Once exported, you can then jump to these candidates in Greenhouse by clicking the View button where the Export button used to be.

Exported Candidates 

When a candidate is imported into your Greenhouse instance via Jumpstart, they will be tagged with Jumpstart as the source. This makes tracking and reporting data very easy.

You will additionally be able to see all actions taken on a candidate in the Activity Feed tab on Greenhouse.
