Help choosing between job offers

Rank: Senior Chimp | 27

I just graduated and currently have two job offers. One is for a commercial lending credit analyst at a community bank and the other is a sales support associate at Prudential. I am under the impression that the credit analyst role will give me more valuable skills (financial statement analysis, excel, etc.) and the role at Prudential will only serve as a stepping stone to other jobs within the company (ideally move into something like fixed income there). Also the job at Prudential will have me taking the series 6/63 and I am taking the CFA level 1 in June. I am aiming to end up in some kind of research role down the road. Does anyone have any insight on this about which path may be a better choice?

Unless you want to be an insurance salesman, I would lean towards being a credit analyst.
