Job Title

Note: Department and Office fields only export to GoCo if the values between Greenhouse and GoCo are the same.

If you want to capture the Job Title, it must be created as an offer custom field & input into the offer details.

How to sync Job Title?

To create custom fields in Greenhouse, click the Configure icon in the upper right corner and select Custom Options on the left.

  • Click on Offers
  • Add Field
  • Field Name: Job Title
  • Field Type: Short Textbox


When completing the Offer Details, fill in the job title.

Note: The job title must exist in GoCo and match exactly.



Error Handling: 

If the sync was not successful, a note will be added to the Activity Feed in Greenhouse. This note will explain why the sync failed and how to fix it. 

Duplicate Prevention: 

The recipe looks for matches in Candidate First Name + Last Name and if a match is found, the sync won’t occur.

Required Fields: 

The only fields required for the sync in Greenhouse are First Name and Last Name
