GF stressed from job search and wants to take a break -- HELP NEEDED!
I'm in a bit of a pickle.
My girlfriend and I have been dating for a few months. She's a computer science major and has been under a lot of stress lately from recruiting. She recently asked for a break from dating, and I'm not sure how to handle the situation. I offered to help her out and use that as a bonding exercise, even though I work in trading and she isn't trying to do that. I believe I know quite a bit about the industry, because she is trying to work as a software engineer at a quant shop. She was previously interested in consulting (given that she liked the consulting club on campus) but that did not work out and she said the recruiting cycle has ended.
I feel like this is a bit unfair to me since I have worked a lot to help her out, but I can understand how she feels. I remember a time when my older brother shut himself off completely from the family for almost a week when he didn't get in his dream school. During Thanksgiving dinner I brought her out to a nice dinner and I felt that she wasn't grateful for all the time and money I put into her being happy.
Ultimately, I just want her to be happy, and I think she eventually wants to get into consulting. I don't know anything about coding since I was a Maths major. Does anyone have any advice on what I should do? Any resources about consulting or SWE I can point her towards?
Thank you in advance!
