Anyone feel super awkward around their team when they’re trying to develop you? My manager and leadership keep telling me that they see me owning the workstream I’m on soon and that I’ll be managing the project in the future and that I have big things ahead for me at the firm. The problem is that I’m job searching now and haven’t told any of them and it’ll be super awkward when I leave.

They might be job searching too. It’s your career - look out for yourself.

Don’t be awkward. Thank them for the experiences and the opportunities they gave you. Your current (and all future) employer would never hesitate to fire you, so never hesitate to leave.

No, it won’t. Employees leave all the time. Always do what’s in your best interest.
