How do I motivate my boyfriend to be a go-getter or pick a career without him knowing it?

My boyfriend hates his job that he has only had for 3 months. We can't afford for him to be unemployed or take a pay cut in a job he likes but is only seasonal position. He gets defensive when we talk about his job situation. I need to know how to talk to him without him thinking I'm being a nag but he needs to understand that we are partners trying to reach a common goal.

In my personal experience, the only person who can motivate your boyfriend is himself. Try leaving helpful notes around the house, or even clip out classifieds you think he might like and attach a note saying maybe this job will make you happier than your current one.
