For pdfFiller’s FAQs

Below is a list of the most common customer questions. If you can’t find an answer to your question, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.

Can I legally use my nickname?

Yes, as long as the nickname is sufficient to identify you as party to the contract, but generally a full legal name is better able to do this.

Is it OK to use nickname on resume?

While it's okay to display a nickname on your resume under normal circumstances, supplying a false name in order to hide your identity or pass yourself off as another person may be considered a criminal offense.

Can I use nickname legally?

Yes, as long as the nickname is sufficient to identify you as party to the contract, but generally a full legal name is better able to do this.

Can I put a fake name on my resume?

You can use a different name on your resume and on applications, if it's the name that you go by. This sounds good but I don't go by any other name other than my actual name. It would be weird to have people calling me by a fake name and referring to me by a fake name at work.

Can I put nickname on job application?

In short, you can use your chosen or preferred name throughout your job search, as long as you provide your legal name when it comes time for a background check. If you go by a nickname and don't mind sharing your legal name, you can put this on your resume like these: Xiu Ying Suzie Li or Robert Bobby Doe.

Should I go by my nickname at work?

As a general rule of thumb, any nickname that is just a shorter version of your given name is fine for the workplace, says Amanda Augustine, career expert at TheLadders. Salemi agrees that you can make a nickname work in any occupation so long as "you own it and you're proud and you're professional."

Can you apply to a job with a different name?

Having a name on your resume that you go by other than your birth name is completely acceptable, as long as it is properly written. Although you should include your legal name for official reasons on your resume, it is customary to include the name you want to call in the hiring process.

Do I have to put my legal name on a job application?

In short, you can use your chosen or preferred name throughout your job search, as long as you provide your legal name when it comes time for a background check. (If you don't provide current or prior legal names at that point, it can be seen as lying on the application, and grounds for firing.)
