Trying to decide between applying for sales jobs (account exec) or something more ops/PM related, work towards product manager. Great storyteller, dangerous with tech theory/principles (can talk to a lot) but don’t have a very strong technical background in terms of hard skills. Would love to someday work for a venture capital firm and/or a game changing startup. Advice?

I’m Happy to fly in on a monthly basis but I don’t want to move there.

I have offers with Bain (Sr mgr) and BCG (PL2), and will be focusing on their PE practices. I know Bain is the leader in PE work, but having trouble deciding which offer to go for. Biggest factors for me to consider is career progression (in consulting), culture, optionality in the types of deals/projects. My conflict right now is I had better interactions with BCG interviewers and initially leaned that way, but the infrastructure & market presence of Bain in this space is strong. Thoughts?

But my big concern is that I've only been with my current company for a year (this is my first job, post PhD). Would this affect my resume in the future in terms of being viewed as "job hopping"?
