Just be honest. You can talk about how you want to broaden your influence and get new perspectives and you think part of your strategy towards this is to look for a new CC that may be offer you insights into your new career goals or direction. You can say a new cc will assist in your plans of wanting to network with an additional set of people...You can say you’d like to still maintain a relationship as you value their support and insights but it is time to branch off in a new direction. You can mention what you have valued and learned from them. Thank them and wish them well. Happens all the time.

LinkedIn post thanking network for new job, yes or no? seemed humble braggy to me and I thought I should just reach out to people directly but friend said otherwise — how is it received?

When it comes to minorities getting paid less than their white counterparts (esp. men), do you think it’s more about minorities having difficulties standing up for themselves to make a case for getting a raise/promotion, the bias of their managers/leadership, or both? Asian male here who doesn’t like to toot my own horn or play politics but feel increasingly like it’s required to keep climbing in this industry.
