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 2/5
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
Not able to use login 1/5
I am trying to log onto my account using my student information, yet every time a link is supposed to be sent to set up a temporary passcode, there is no email in my inbox and spam mail. The mobile app is useless so I can only use a desktop computer if I need to access Handshake.
Looks great but 2/5
I have never been able to upload a resume or transcript and actually apply for a job. It’s good for browsing but that’s about it. The interface is user friendly but the most important feature doesn’t even work.
Can’t login with exist account 1/5
Can’t login with my username and password I created through web app. Then I came across the reviews. Can’t believe the log in problem was there one year ago!!! Can’t understand why my school uses such an app! I would give zero star.
Can’t log off 1/5
I can’t find where I off.
By MM Truong
Handshake connects student and potential employers on an easy to use platform!
Excellent App Tie-In 5/5
Very streamlined, excellent menu navigation and user-friendly UI. Smooth and painless to use in every aspect.
Student Orientated 5/5
A time-saving platform for busy students
Whew. Couldn’t take it anymore. Just deleted it. Nothing opens, nothing works. Weird app, honestly
Unable to login 1/5
Just unable to login even with my student mail id
Can Not Sign In 1/5
I already have a handshake account, yet the app will only allow me to request a temporary password instead of logging in with my account. When I request a password with my handshake email address, I am told it is an invalid school email address which is obviously not true. One star because I never got the opportunity to use the rest of the app.
Cannot open at all on iPhone X? 1/5
I don't know what's the matter but I'm unable to open this app on my iPhone X. It just stays on the very start welcome page forever. I've unloaded it several times but still doesn't help.
Only for “Partnered” Universities 1/5
I go to a pretty good school, Sam Houston State University, so I was super disappointed to learn that my school email was rejected to sign up.
iPhone Only 2/5
This app is an iPhone app, and doesn’t look good on the iPad. please update to work. Also doesn’t connect well with GoogleDocs through the app.
Berry Good 🍓 5/5
Pages load again! App is great!
Amazing Tool for Students 5/5
By Njit student
This is the best platform I have ever come across which creates an on campus environment for students and employers.
I enjoy using it. Easy to use and smooth 5/5
Only concern is notifications, they won’t load when I click a particular notification.
How does this app have 4.8 stars? Handshake is amazing, but the app is useless. I just wanted to check my application statuses from my phone and that feature, among others, doesn’t work.
Can’t Even Use It 1/5
This app won’t accept my school email or any email that I try.
Couldn’t Begin 1/5
Downloaded app, tried to enter my email address for Berklee and said please enter a valid email. Couldn’t pass that
