I'm a Android Software Developer by profession, and from many years I'm using a fake name "Max Rockwood" as my online identity everywhere, on Stack Exchange Github, Twitter, LinkedIn etc.
I been working as a freelancer from a while and now I'm looking to work remotely as proper employ and I was thinking if it can create any problems now or in future like having two names?
The reason for fake name is the country I'm from we have our own unique name and I been using Max (as its easy to say and remember and "Max Rockwood" combination is unique) from many years and now I need to apply to jobs.
In my own country I can put my real name and point to my online profiles, it is not an issue, but when applying to remote job in european and other countries which name should I use?
Is there any drawbacks of using fake name as online identity? and which name should I use on my Resume when applying on remote jobs, online Identity one or the real ones?
Should I change my fake name to real ones at all my profiles or its okay to use the one I have? I just don't feel like using my real name online and stick to the one I have.
Pardon me if this question sounds silly but its really important, I will appreciate any profesional advice.
