I am currently interviewing for the job description below for an entry level commercial real estate analyst position at a 3 person real estate asset management firm. I am not familiar with what an entry-level commercial real estate analyst would do at a real estate asset management firm as the lending side of commercial real estate has always been more interesting to me.
Is this job inline with what someone would do at a larger firm and is this experience going to meaningful in a few years? Would this be a stepping stone into a decent career in real estate? Your thoughts?
