I have two referrals available but to the same firm:
EM/PL/M -- US
He's an alumni of my MBA, so he's never seen me in action, but I'm assuming his title carries some weight.
Associate/Consultant -- Dubai
This person has been at the firm for lets say ~1.5 years post-MBA. We knew each other in class, and he has good opinion of me.
My concern is getting my foot in the door and less so other factors. Frankly, I'm single and can move anywhere. Both offices will offer work in my preferred sectors.
They've both agreed to refer. Which of the two should I choose?
My assumptions are I can't have two referrals at the same time, and that cross-office referrals are weaker.
