1. Is the BA role something you’d be ok with for your career path? 2. How has your luck been with interviewing for other product roles? Do you have to go with these two for now? What’s really important is to figure out where you want to be the next job after this next one. If your goal is to be a product director, does any of these get you closer to that? If your goal is to make $X by Y date, then what helps you get there? By mapping this out it’ll help you approach it more systematically and remove some emotion from the decision process.
