Connect with your partners first, thank them for their support and guidance and say you’ve found another opportunity you think is the right next step in your career. It’ll be a little awkward, but it happens and they will understand

Thank you D2! My thoughts exactly. Now that I answered the questions the people who asked are silent lol

Thanks SC1- as opposed to my career counselor first?

OP - you said EM? Is that McK ?

Np OP.
Don’t worry, I got your back. You were never going to get answers from those people anyway.

In terms of an answer, you need to frame it as appreciative of the past but excited and hopeful for the new challenge. It’s a bit awkward but turnover is high and people understand and the majority of people are happy for you

D2 appreciate it. Thanks!

Lol jerk circle going on

^ You’re the one who looks like a fool

OP, depends on your relationship with your CC. Earlier in my career when I was leaving Deloitte, I don’t think I told my equivalent (can’t recall what it was called there) until after I spoke with my partners. I didn’t want it to leak to them before they heard it from me.
