project I’m leading is going sideways and I’m also focusing 90% of my energy on finding a new job, so I have no motivation to get things back on track.
However, love my SM who is overseeing things & dont want to leave them with both no lead and a project on fire
If I do get a job in the next few months, what’s the best way to approach not leaving on really bad terms? I truly cannot make myself care about this project…

Be straight forward about your reasons for leaving. If they truly care about you as a person then they will be happy for you. That also means they will try and talk you into staying but should be understanding when you don’t. That’s the life.

First year in a litigation group stuck on a case where all they give me is data entry work all day (updating charts, excel sheets, etc). This work doesn’t seem to have any relevance to litigation skills whatsoever, and because this case is so much work (and the partner is territorial), it’s all I do all day, every day, even weekends. I wouldn’t mind the hours I was building relevant skills, but this is work the client’s HR dept should be doing. It’s frustrating and insulting. What should I do?
