Hey All! Current 1st year MBA student here really struggling on choosing an internship. I really wanted to pivot into a PM role, but getting some traction in other directions. Which internship offer would you say has the most upside?

1) FAAMG Product Marketing Manager

2) Gaming Tech Strategy (think Riot/Activision/Blizzard/King/EA/Epic). I have been told this is a pipeline to a rotational program or PM role

3) Forget PM, go MBB or bust and then try to pivot into big tech strategy&ops

Hi all. I am a content writer with 2YOE and want to level up to be a digital marketer. I've undertaken a certification program and am supposed to appear for placements in 8-9 months approx.
Meanwhile I wanted to get into an internship/fresher job to have some practical experience in this domain and to leverage my salary when placement season arrives. Any suggestions on which companies should I opt for? And should I run after reputed companies or startups?
Thanks in advance!

I know that my designs could be better if I could see how things are actually built but I get slapped in the face with “I need you in the office designing/drafting” or “there’s no budget to have you go out” and then sends an intern to inspect instead. I’m 5 yrs out of college. Any advice?
