Ishido - Going Inactive

Some people start their journey here at Lifebushido and later decide it is not working out. Or the reason that they sought work from home positions have become overwhelming because life happens. If you feel that Lifebushido is not working out for you, please complete the following steps. This will enable us to better understand why you have made this decision and how we may be able to alleviate any stress in the future to keep good people like you on board. We want to improve our hiring process and find the people best suited for this job. Telling us why you feel you are not a good “fit” with Lifebushido will help us tremendously in the future.

  • We are open to discussion to help you make the best possible decision and if we need to help you in your determined endeavor to remain with Lifebushido we are willing to do so. If you feel there is work at Lifebushido which would make use of your unique talent but it has not been acknowledged yet – we can work together to find the work that will better suit you.
  • If you are leaving for personal matters - let the Talent Team know that you would like to be put on hold and give us a date when you will be willing to return to Lifebushido. You can go through the process at another time. We want you back!
