Remote, it will have more impact on your career. Yourll eventually get on a project on site so I wouldn’t worry about that. Also if you can, go into the office yourll get the social networking bug out of the way

Agree with A1. If you love it you will be successful.

For efficient learning, in person. I would go with the industry you like though.

Honestly any first project is a great learning experience so you can’t go wrong. On-site is much easier for building up your skills and learning how consulting works. I often caution people against picking projects purely on industry or because it sounds exciting - those sometimes turn out to be less than advertised. But like I said, you can’t go wrong - good luck!
