My brother had been confirmed for the role of Assistant Manager in Axis bank. He got confirmation through e mail and over phone also. But it has been four months since confirmation and still, he has not received the offer letter. He consult with Hr, the hr says that the post has been put on hold and waiting for more days, but now it becomes 120days no response from other sides. What does this mean can anyone suggest??Would he prefer for another company or he should wait for it??

Dear Annonymous,
Banks like Axis Bank will not give any false promises. Mail confirmation is already sent to the candidate by the Bank, confirming his selection. Due to this pandemic covid-19 era, there can be some reasons for delay which can be beyond the control of HR or senior management of Bank.
So, the candidate need to await for some more time. At the same time, he can search another job as well, as we have to apply practical wisdom in our personal life.

A job offer put on hold can only mean that company likes you but due to company related issues cant take you on board for time being
Follow up
Use time usefully to add to qualification
Keep looking around for other jobs.
Covid times are unprecedented and one neefs to be watchful and not keep resting on laurels.
Be active on job front.

Querist has raised an important query.

In the times of COVID such things are happening-offers put on hold, interviews cancelled,joining dates being postponed etc,

All this leave the job seeker in quandry. Jobs are not available nowadays and when after securing the job,such a thing happens, one can well understand the candidates state of mind.

In general

Candidates may or may not be informed about why the offer has been put on hold. Some common reasons for a job offer being put on hold could be:

Budget concerns or the failure of a big project, product, or initiative

Unexpected restructuring, which could involve layoffs, the company being acquired, or work pausing in the area where you were going to join.

Reservations on the part of the hiring manager or other stakeholders about your ability to do the role

Internal competition for the role, or potentially, a decision not to resign on the part of the person who was vacating the position.

This may not be directly relevant to the present querist case.

But not withstanding if such events happen-not to take such holds personally and keep trying and adding more qualifications etc in the interim period.

Its only a verbal or mail confirmation stating that he has been selected for the project. There is no offer letter released or any other formalities are put into place, which means to say he is not entitled to employment with the company. Also 4 months is lot of time. The best option is just to move ahead with other prospects keeping this offer aside unless the offer letter is officially released.

The professional approach can be..sending out an email to the concerned HR/Recruiter letting them know that, if they can be helpful by providing transparency on the offer. If they are looking at the possibilities of taking a decision after the pandemic. Look out for other opportunities, and give a hint to the other recruiter stating that you already had an offer from Axis bank and because of the time gap, you have started searching for new opportunities. By giving this heads up, they would understand that if your offer letter is release at Axis bank you will be serving notice period and will leave the organization.

For an organization like Axis bank they wont have much trouble hiring a replacement, if you are not available. But as an individual you do not have the option of playing along with your career. 3 months could have been the maximum you waited for thier offer letter and then you should understand and move on.

To begin with, let's examine the origins of the term "motivation" . This word comes from the English "movere" - "move". In other words, motivation is what drives a person, makes him, with enviable perseverance and perseverance, perform this or that task and go towards the set goal. A motivated person easily achieves intellectual, sports and creative success.
