No sign in when your first open 1/5
By The Foxfeather from the north
There is no sign in or log in option when you first open the app which is why I am giving it one star. I don’t want to create another account just because I am using a new device.
My college isn’t an option 1/5
University of Maryland University College, now University of Maryland Global Campus is not an option in the app, so I can’t use it at all.
Resourceful and Unique 5/5
I love this app. I’ve used other platforms such as Indeed in the past. But as a recent graduate Handshake has proved to be the best in job searching.
UI is very problematic 1/5
By pissd off customer
I cannot see what I type when adding a description to my job experiences. The description text field is hidden by my keyboard when I tap to type something. What I mean is the field doesn’t move up to allow me to see what I type and also you cannot copy/paste anything either since you can’t highlight or long press in the text field since it’s not visible on screen when typing. This is such a huge oversight and I cannot be descriptive about my experiences which is troubling as potential employers won’t know what I did/do in my past or current experiences which defeats the purpose of this app. Please fix this blatant and critical issue.
Perhaps I live in a void and attend a university of one because everything is completely blank. I mean everything. No jobs or events or anything even with all filters off.

It says my college email isn’t valid, I don’t understand
Best post-college resource 5/5
Handshake is super helpful. It’s one of the best resources I’ve used to land my first few gigs right after college. The user experience is seamless and the notifications aren’t unnecessarily annoying.
Won’t let me even sign into the app 2/5
By Cameron Malik
As soon as you open the app it only gives you the option to log in with a valid school email to receive a temporary passcode or asks if you already have a temporary passcode. But I already have an account so why can’t it just let me sign in like any other app. When I try to use my email that already has a handshake account it says it’s invalid but how’s that possible if I already have an account.
Would give it 0 stars if i could 1/5
I haven’t had a chance to use the app because it says it doesn’t support jailbroken phones, but my phone has never been jailbroken.
Really intuitive 5/5
By Andrew Nieto
I love how finding a job is easy with this app and it’s even better when finding work study jobs if you’re a student.
Easy to use 5/5
This is a great app. It is easy to use and not overwhelming to look at. I love how they organize jobs in different categories such as by location and category. If you feel you are limited, their filters can help you narrow your search.
Jobs search 5/5
Great app to get a job!
Hard to upload docs 4/5
By Anthony Ciccone
I want to be able to upload my resume from OneDrive
Wont work on my device 1/5
Says it won’t work on my device because it’s jailbroken.
My device is not jailbroken or modified at all.
??? 1 Star since I can’t get it to work.
I love y’all I should have been applied when I first came home on break from school now I need to go back
For future versions~ 2/5
Please increase compatibility for tablets - there is no landscape view for this app.
Plan and simple, Handshake works 5/5
I’ve tried many job searches for years, took nearly an eternity to find the most effective.
Doesn’t work 1/5
On top of having pretty much no job opportunities in my field it also can’t even function properly. I have constant trouble just doing basic applications it’s too beyond frustrating to use
I opened the app after downloading it but it would not work. Handshake says my device is jailbroken but it's not. I have an Iphone 6s+ and I remember getting it and I've had it for a while but I never had it jailbroke it?????
Waste of time 1/5
Cannot sign in on app as alumni and personal email. Utter garbage of UI and app.
Best app ever 5/5
App is saying I’m jailbroken 1/5
I can’t login because it says I’m jailbroken
Worked for a while 2/5
App won’t open for me anymore. I get a message that reads, “your device is jailbroken.” and that they do not support these devices.
I uninstalled/reinstalled the app and it still shows the message.
My phone is not jailbroken.
Jail broken 2/5
I actually love using the app and checking for new job updates. But recently I’ve been locked out of the app and it’s saying my phone is jailbroken is anyone else having this problem.
I got more responses on Indeed 2/5
I’ve been using handshake for over a month and have only gotten one response from all of my applications. Truly does feel like a waste
App saying my phone is jail broken?? 1/5
I just recently clicked on the app to check out some job openings. However it will not let me use the app because it is saying my iphone is Jailbroken, which it is not and never has been. There was recently an update 3 days ago, so I’m not sure if this is a flaw in their new software? I also tried to find someone to contact about the problem and they have no customer service contact outlets, so I decided to comment on here to hopefully bring the issue to attention.
Jail broken device? 1/5
By K.D 19
It was normal until today, when I opened app to check around, it said that my iPhone was “jail broken”. What’s going on? It is impossible. Their app definitely got serious bugs!
Horrible Design 1/5
This continuously fails at “sending” a temp password even though I had a login previously. When I tried my original password, it would just show a loading screen to no avail.
Please fix this issue.
Can’t login 1/5
It requires a temp password. I tried to resending the password several times, however, I wasn’t able to receive it!
Problems to sign in 1/5
Just don’t know why after I typed in my school email and I didn’t received any temporary passcode …😤
No temporary password 1/5
Won’t send me a temp password to login. Not sure why I can’t just create a password from the app. Bad design
Issues with the app 1/5
Does not allow me to sign in
Worst Job App Ever Created 1/5
The app crashed the first 6 times I tried to post a job. It continually loses my data. The University took over a week to review my posting and then once the posting was approved the app didn’t automatically post the job and now the posting is lost and has to be done again. Additionally, this app needs some serious streamlining. It shouldn’t require so many steps to post a job. Incredibly frustrating.
Too wide search results 5/5
The app is ok, and the results do match well for search terms unlike some other job apps. My complaint is that the search area is way too wide. I’m north of Baltimore and my results are for DC and northern VA. The website lets you narrow it by distance but the app does not. I hope this changes because otherwise I can see this being a good, useful app. I just don’t have time to look through all these jobs I’d never apply to.
You can’t search for an event
Links in email never open in-app 3/5
Why don’t the links to events in email take us straight to the app? Instead they take us to the website, and if you click “open in app” it won’t take you to the page you were looking for, just the home page.
Crashes a lot 3/5
This app crashes every time I try to change my profile picture. I uninstalled the app and reinstalled it in hopes that it would work but unfortunately it still crashes. I hope you guys can fix the issue please.
Can’t get a temp link? 1/5
Already have an account with my university, yet can’t access the app because a temp link it insists I need to login never arrives. This could be a great tool for me to not have to be on my desktop to apply but that’s not happening. Some severely lacking IT skills on the app’s end judging by how widespread this issue is.
Sign on problems 1/5
Can’t even sign onto the app. I have an account already and it wants me to use a temporary passcode while it never even sends it.
Please fix 1/5
I absolutely hate this app.. I have yet to be able to login to my account on the app yet I can login from my browser with ease. I don’t like how under the education section you only get the option for “ bachelors “ or “associates “ . I have an AA degree and am currently pursuing a BS degree it would be nice to be able to difference between the two.
Pretty good thus far 4/5
Pretty cool app and very user friendly I feel like I am in a deluxe express line ! I do wish they had more listings in my major though. They have some good ones in there just have to search harder . They do have a recommended listing which helped me a lot :).
Best for students 5/5
This is way better than indeed
By Eric Jenson
Email with temp password never sent. Why?
Can’t register 1/5
I was recommended this app by a friend because it worked for her and she has a great paid internship now. I would really love to use this app but I can't sign up i have restarted the temporary password for my email and I won't get an email to receive the passcode. Hopefully, this can be fixed because I would really love to try this app.
Doesn’t work 5/5
I’m job hunting as an alumni and I still have and use my edu email it never sends the link for the mobile app but I had no problem setting up my profile on the regular computer site. Faulty!
APP IS TERRIBLE 1/5
Why tf can I not login I don’t understand it?! It keeps asking for a temporary code and what not I have my username and password already?! Why can’t I just simply input it!?? Complete BS and I’m using an iPhone 8plus
Please fix it 1/5
I downloaded the app because I had created an account through my laptop. My school is doing a free tuition challenge and one of the requirements is to download the handshake app. I never get the temporary password link and honestly don’t know why I need one when I already have an account ? I haven’t been able to use the app and have contacted help support with no answer back ever.
Great Job Board 5/5
Good choices, constantly updating
