How do I add new fields to an existing scaffold in rails?

Im following the "Design and Development" Track and I would like to add more fields to the scaffold it was created. I would like to add the ability to upload a logo for the company creating the job, location and probably a checkbox that lets you know if its a full time or part time job.

you would have to generate a migration and then add those fields in the changes method. Check out the RoR migration documentation for more information
