Which internship to take if I'm interested in eventually working as a QR at an HF?

Junior undergrad at a non-target here. I unexpectedly received offers for a QR internship at a BB and a QT/Prop Trading role at a reputable HFT firm. For the BB role, I'm on a FO team, but I am not sure what exactly I would be doing yet.

Could any more experienced users help me figure out which internship would help out with a long-term goal of doing QR at a hedge fund?

Does it even matter which one I take?
