She's 26 and she hasn't grasped how different careers work? Sounds like my old college friend who chose IT because she thought it'd be fun and cos she can use Facebook only to flunk and left when she discovered how much work goes into it.
How she interpreted was not your fault, you offered guidance on how to go down that route not hand her a position on a silver platter. Technology is all about learning because we're always advancing. So for someone who's not wanting to learn anything related to tech, she's in for a surprise if she magically did get the job.
NTA. Your friend and mutual one are idiots. She ruined her own career for not doing research and checking before quitting.
