My nephew is fortunate enough to hold 2 offers for this upcoming and final summer before he graduates. He has an offer from VMware as a Product Manager intern (B2B) and an offer from Goldman Sachs as a Product Manager intern in the Marcus org (B2C).
Which one should he choose? Which one would set him up better to apply to new grad APM/PM programs? His short and long-term goal is to be at either FAANG or a unicorn.

- VMware JyVs22Your nephew should decide which industry he wants to be in/start in. VMware will get him into cloud/enterprise/B2B , Goldman Sachs will give him b2c consumer fintech experience. If his graduation goal is FAANG entry level PM roles - those don’t care about which industry he’s experienced with, but some unicorns do - so he should ask himself which unicorns he’d like to be in, if it’s more consumer (many consumer fintech/insuretech unicorns) then he should go to Goldman.
