Hello Bees 🙂
My SO is planning on leaving his current job soon and has asked me to help him with his resume (I have recent job hunting experience). I’m having trouble helping his without butting in too much.
We’ve both in our early 20’s and really starting out our career paths. His current job is the same part time gig he had all through college and is looking for his first “real” job. I really want to know what career path he’s looking at, what his 5 year plan is, all that jazz, but I don’t want to be too pushy. We’ve discussed marriage before so he knows that his future plans impact me, but I feel like since we aren’t actually engaged or married that I don’t have as much as a right to ask his about this stuff. Also, I’m a big planner, very Type-A, while he’s more laid back and probably hasn’t even thought out his plan in as much detail as I’d like to know. I know he’s stresses about this and I don’t want to make it worse by being overbearing.
Has anyone had successful convos with their SO about careers and finances like this? I just don’t know how to discuss it in a way that he knows I’m there to support him and help him, and not end up sounding like a carrer counslor.
