I am currently employed as an analyst at a large Special Servicer. I completed an internship with my current employer in the Portfolio Oversight division of the company during my last semester of undergrad. Upon completion, I was offered a spot as an analyst in the Special Servicing department. I feel I was under qualified at the time but my MD must have wanted to extand me the opportunity due to my familiarity with the company's processes. After a few interviews I was offered the position. The analyst whose position I took was 7 years older than me and had already achieved his MBA.Many of the people who work around me have come from PE or hedge funds which is what I have been striving to work in. I feel extremely fortunate to have my position but I am getting curious as to whether this experience will lead to other opportunities on the buy side. I frequently interact and coordinate with our parent company who often purchases the notes of some of our higher rated properties. I feel even more fortunate that my MD is usually given the deals that will later be sold to our parent company. With that said, I get the chance to learn more than some of the other analysts not participating in the note sales.Can anyone tell me how my exit ops may look with a couple years of SS experience?
I can provide more color later. Thanks.
