STUDENT ASKING GO INTERN AT GOVT AGENCY BETTER OR LISTED COMPANY

Need some advice here. I’ve recently received 2 potential internship opportunities and need some help in deciding and also to maintain the relationship between myself and the organisations.

Just in case it’s relevant to note, it’s for the real estate & development industry.

I’ve approached Company A first to ask for an internship opportunity but shortly received another offer few hours later from Company B.

Here are some profiling:

Company A

– A subsidiary of a publicly listed company in the industry

– Potential opportunity for growth (to jump into or be recognised by the mother company)

– Response for internship opportunity was not firm. I was told to just email them and they’ll ‘see what they can do’

Company B

– A government agency

– (commonly seen as a superior party by the older generations I suppose)

– Firm and keen response from the employer; sounds almost guaranteed that I’ll get the internship

Both of the job scope seem to be something I’d enjoy in, so assuming the pay and location of the workplace are the same,

1) Which company should I go for?

2) How do I politely reject the other, while still maintaining the relationship for future opportunities?

Especially since I’m the one who approached Company A myself, what should I do if I decide to go with Company B?

Thanks and have a great December!
