I was given a verbal offer and then the media agency lost an account before I could sign an offer letter. Now there is a temporary hiring freeze. Is there any hope? I’m really sad about this.

Keep in touch with them, and periodically let them know you’re still interested. Things change, and the position could open up again

You’re stuck where you are, for now.

They shouldn’t have given you a verbal offer (or even interviewed you) if they knew the account was under review IMO

This happened to me too, at a previous agency!! I had to wait 4-5 months for the approval to go through but it did happen in the end. I made sure I kept in regular contact with the head of dept who interviewed me - I didn’t go go via HR at this stage. Your other option is to talk to them about another team?
