Good opportunities, I’ve earned 2 jobs from here.
Employment Connections 5/5
As a student and a participant in the handshake app, I have access to employers that are actively hiring for individuals in their respective fields. This is a very user friendly tool.
Logs out 2/5
The app logs me out every time I exit it!

Handshake has made apps easy! 5/5
By kl kay
I applied to a job and when I submitted it the confetti started raining down on the screen and I felt like I’d accomplished something
Better Off on Indeed 1/5
No jobs relevant to my major, actually recommended a job as a waiter and dish washer. I thought my resume was approved, but apparently “changes suggested” means I need to resubmit my resume a fifth time.
Temp Passcode Takes Too Long 1/5
Can’t sign in with this new system. It takes over 10m for the temporary passcode to be emailed, and when you finally get it, the app has refreshed the page and makes you request a new one. Unable to log in at all.
Great Opportunity’s 5/5
By Amani. J
I have found amazing internship experience and opportunities with this app. I recommend it to everyone
No to online schools 1/5
By Erica Jae
They discriminate against students attending online schools. As if those students don’t work hard and deserve jobs and internships the way traditional students do. College is college!! Denying students help when searching for jobs simply based on which institution they attend is really disappointing. Yet students seeking degrees solely online can still use Handshake just because the college also has a campus. What makes that online student different from other online students??
Won’t let me sign in 1/5
App doesn’t work. Sent me temporary password to my school email. When password is entered a message pops up saying there has been an issue try again. I’ve tried again multiple times with the same results. Resent email with temporary password and tried again... same thing.
Excellent App 5/5
Needs a lot of work 1/5
Where is the login option after you download the app. It’s slow and confusing. Still using the mobile version because the app doesn’t work well. I’m not sure how this will help me at all to get hired or network with others.
Not really beneficial 1/5
By Thunder Dream
It sends me job alerts through my school for non-major related careers. I mean really a stretch. I did move 600 miles away to Michigan, so I assume there aren’t many opportunities that are fed through my school’s handshake network. Since there is also MSU of handshake you’d think it would be connected nationwide, but it is not.
Pretty much it’s DOT internships, a couple of finance jobs, and camp counselors for summer.
Easy to use 5/5
This is as smooth as it can get... if you have you resume updated and know what jobs to apply for, then this is a great way to let employers know you are in the market.
REMOVE BUILTIN BROWSER 1/5
By Max 360 owner
Handshake makes you use their USELESS built in browser for application outside of their platform
Versatile jobs 5/5
Many quality audio positions to choose from.
App is not an app 1/5
The app just pushes you to web which is not optimized for iPhone.
Can’t log in 1/5
By Someone who doesn't drive
App doesn’t allow me to login in with my SSO. Unfortunately app has no service if you’re from Rutgers - Newark it seems
Not sending verification email 1/5
The app keeps saying that it sent me a verification email with a temporary password but it has not and I am unable to sign in.
Accessibility issue 3/5
By prinzess T
This app is not fully accessible with voice over
Does not scale correctly 1/5
I’m using an iPad Pro 12.9”. The app screen interface will not enlarge. This shouldn’t be in the App Store is it clearly doesn’t work on IOS...
Shows already applied jobs 1/5
Why do you show jobs that have already applied? It’s a great app but the experience of scrolling through jobs is terrible. You want to make things easier to find. Keep it simple.
Great, Just Missing a Needed Feature 4/5
Handshake has been a great app to use, literally giving me opportunities at my fingertips.
However, there is one feature that needs to be added: some sort of “My Events” section. There is no way for me to see the Events I have registered for already, forcing me to go through the long list of events my university has to offer until I recognize one I registered for.
Please add a “My Events” feature and that would be so helpful!

Clear notifications 5/5
The app is nice to use and is elegant but I have one feature suggestion: notification clearing. As of now all the notifications stack up and I wish you could empty them out.
How do I cancel this app? 2/5
How do I cancel or get rid of this app?
Can’t add profile picture 1/5
Kind of a big deal that you can’t add a profile picture...
POOR APPLICATION 1/5
This application is not very well put together. Initially when the application was opened, its in a vertical position and will not work when placed sideways with a keyboard... This is extremely annoying and will likely not use often
Great Resource 5/5
I’ve been able to land several great internships using this platform. Most recommended!
Amazing platform for students ! 5/5
Handshake made my career a milkshake ! Superb platform!!
Needs work 1/5
By His best album
I couldn’t sign into the app. I already have an account but there’s not button to sign in. It would only create a new account.
Can’t even log in 1/5
After typing in my email to get a temporary passcode (which I don’t get why I need when I have a permanent password), I never receive an email. I tried redownloading the app a few months after my first attempt to log in but I still don’t get a passcode sent to me. Since I can’t even use the app, 1 star.
Never sends the password. 1/5
By Cheyenne Shamss
I never got the password that the app is supposed to send to your email after trying for a couple of days.
Add a school 2/5
I want to add a school on here that’s all thank you
I wish you could provide details on how to do so
Love it. 5/5
Handshake has made my job hunting experience 10x easier. Thank you, Handshake!
By Pareena N
After picking the college you’re enroll in. The app forces you to use certain type of email address that they believe your school uses. Which is not even accurate, therefore I wasn’t able to make an account.
Please add IPad Support 1/5
No iPad support
Super awesome app 5/5
SOOOOOO HELPFUL! Has everything right there, I literally applied for an internship (that the app found and recommended to me and I was what I was looking for) in 3 seconds
Error when receiving a notification but it leads to a login page
Login doesn’t work 5/5
Used to be pretty good, but now it just asks me to create a new account even though I already have a .edu with my university.
Update: Apparently, my university changed the email to be used with Handshake. It is still the same for receiving emails, but with some added characters for Handshake...some sort of alias perhaps? I don’t know the reason of this, but now it works.
Make IOS Compatible 2/5
I have a Apple IPad Pro. I have the HandShake app downloaded on IPad Pro and app is not compatible. I can only use vertically which eliminates the key board I have and I would be able to use if the app was compatible horizontally.
Needs work done 2/5
The app needs allot of work still. First off there isn’t a log off button anywhere so if you signed up with the wrong email then good luck on fixing that. There are many things the website has that cannot be accessed through the app such as viewing other students in your school. As for the actual job searching tool it is far too wide. I live in Texas. Denton to be exact yet I’m seeing jobs in other states. The app has potential but I’m honestly surprised that it seems as if it wasn’t tested thoroughly. What I recommend for you all to do is ask various students all the problems we are having with your website. A simple survey email should suffice.
Need iPad Version 1/5
It’s incompatible with my tablet, being stretched out & low resolution. You can’t even rotate the screen either. I’d appreciate it if it would work well on the iPad because this is the device I use for school and business, not my phone.
Needs IPad Support 1/5
This app doesn’t recognize my screen position and is locked in portrait mode, making it very challenging to use with my keyboard in landscape mode. Also, the UI is small / phone shaped. Bummer.
Login doesn’t work 1/5
Login doesn’t work - I already have an account and it won’t let me sign I
Review: mediocre 2/5
By Gio Varara
Search is frustrating —the finder does not register properly to search for single words. If chose events it might jump to jobs etc.
Also on App this is a pathetic attempt to try and open in the app from notifications instead of the o my options: chrome, safari and one more.
Asi, fair details should be on downloadable excel sheet.
Hope this improves in the future.
Also employers should be required to list if wor authorization is only for grad students and not undergrads so we don’t waste time applying.
Trash Garbage – Less Than One Star 1/5
By shirt shorts and cup
This app infuriates me. Hopefully this scathing review gets the attention of the devs because using this stupid app should not be this frustrating. I download the app and it asks for me email. I type in my school .edu email and wait for the temp password email from this piece of garbage, but because this app is trash, I never receive an email! How the hell am I supposed to take advantage of handshake as an iOS app the same way other students can if I can't even ACCESS IT. There are no options to ask for help, connect with customer service, or any other avenue to be able to get access to my account on the app. Such a shameful design decision.
That app is kind of annoying in the sense that it won’t allow you to just sign in. You have to go through ALL the motions again just to set up an account that I already made. It seems like it would work pretty ok but I don’t have the patience and immediately deleted it.

Amazing app that helps you make connections
