EM1 is being a little extreme.. have definitely seen people grab a quick catch up coffee to chat before they leave. Would only do it with people you’re close with though

Agreed. That's how I did it. Still keep in touch with them today.

Honestly no-one will care to “connect” with you if you’re proposing to take time out of their working day. You’re leaving, they’re staying, and they’re busy - I wouldn’t add to their pile. Just my view, I left a firm and did an Irish exit, people who cared reached out via phone or LinkedIn and I spoke with them after I left.

If they’re mentors def call them. I had a mentee of mine just leave and she texted to see if we could chat quickly. Appreciated she took the time to let me know personally

I have always appreciated someone reaching out to tell me they are leaving soon, tell me about their plans or just reminisce old times. Obviously depends on how good a relationship you have with them. So don't reach out to every single person, but the ones you have worked closely with at some point - they will definitely appreciate it

If you have close friendships or informal mentors / mentees setting up time should be fine. But I’d suspect it wouldn’t be a super extensive list, just those you were closest with.
