When a job offer is put on hold?
When your job offer is on hold, it means the company would still like to hire you but can’t right now. And, the company likely can’t tell you exactly if and when they will hire you in the future. In either case, consider it a blessing that you are not working for the company.
Can I put nickname on resume?
Nicknames are perfectly acceptable to put on a resume as long as they aren’t too informal. Using “Dan” as the shortened version of “Daniel” is just fine, but shortening “Benjamin” into “Jamster” is not (even if, God forbid, that’s what you like to be called).
Is it better to apply for jobs online or in person?
The simple rule is if you’re looking for a job where you’re dealing directly with a customer offering assistance — you should apply in person. If you’re looking for a job where everyone has a computer or at the least is expected to check e-mail — it is okay to stick to all online activity.

Again, it depends. A resume is not a legal document, so it is acceptable to use your preferred name. Your legal name should be used for background checks, on social security documents, and on insurance forms. If you have taken steps to legally change your name, then you may use your new legal name for these purposes.

How do you respond to a job on hold?
Say that you would really like to work there and hope that they’ll contact you if the position re-opens. Ask if you can follow up and what time frame would be good. This happened to me once, they lost their headcount due to a bad quarter, but I got the job 3 months later.
