What would you choose? MBB (Digital practice) or Amazon PMT? Background: T15 MBA student, 7YoE as Mech engineer, long term goal is to climb ladder in Tech, married and have a baby Situation: I have a MBB and Amazon PMT offer for summer internship that I need to choose. MBB comes with FT offer, Amazon PMT will most likely result in return offer. If I go with MBB, I plan to exit to big Tech in 2-3 years. Y1 TC for both will be quite similar (around 230k). Thank you in advance!

So I’m just under 1 YOE and work in the construction industry. Im very curious how I can go about securing work (I know that’s usually not something associates or senior associates do). Can I just cold call people who are associated with projects that I know are on going? Do I have to run this by my manager and get their approval? Anything formal I need to do or can I just go about this on my own?
