Hey,

it depends on two things in my eyes - your motivation for a job and the desired position.

If your motivation is money, I would go for the first opportunity, unless you are very successful selling partner.

I have some mentees with who became close friends of mine. I always tell them that consulting is a perfect entry job after the colleague and a springboard in your career and personal development. However, it's not the single option. Especially nowadays with so many exciting ideas and startups there are plenty of opportunities on the market for the talented grads.

Cheers,

André

I would say do a DCF(-ish) calculation for a consultant career vs 1 mn USD. You can do this with easy math if necessary during an interview
