2023 Grads… where to start your career in a recession
As the recession camp begins to grow, I'm wondering where folks who are about to graduate should look to start their careers. It seems like people I look up to in the industry, both big name Jon Gray, Sam Zell, Barry Sternlicht types as well as people I know personally through networking, have attributed a lot of success in their careers from what they learned during downturns.
While potentially graduating into a recession seems daunting, it seems like people coming into the industry at this time have a great learning opportunity ahead of them.
So I'm wondering, what is the best type analyst role to be in right now?
Lending, acquisitions, AM, brokerage? Big/small? Asset class focus?
Not necessarily looking for the safest option, rather the best learning opportunity at a firm that probably won't blow out.
