For the last 3 years I have been working as a consultant for a good company. However, as a consultant it was hard for me to evolve. I started to feel as if my career has been stagnating.
The company where I am consulting is in the tourism sector, which was hit hard by the COVID crisis. My prospects of getting hired on permanently are not good as they are currently laying off staff.
Two months ago, I interviewed with another company and everything went well, but no immediate offer.
An hour ago the new company contacted me with a promise of employment.
I haven't said anything to my current employer, as I didn't want them to know I was looking and continued to do my job. I had meetings with my manager laying out the work for the rest of the year.
Is it impolite to tell my manager that I'm leaving? even though we were recently taking about projects for the rest of this year.
How should I approach my manager in this situation.
