I am a first year analyst at a small/mid-size commercial developer right outside Philadelphia. Currently, I am on a small acquisitions team and my responsibilities include running excel models, ARGUS models, preparing equity memorandum, observing due diligence process, reviewing leases, etc. for projects upwards of $30MM. I am unsure of what field I want to pursue, but I do enjoy the finance side of my job (i.e., loans, financial modeling, cash flow analysis, etc.) I do not like the development aspect because I'm not interested in project management/construction management. Based on these interests, I believe that I would enjoy working at a REPE, a more macro-oriented developer (i.e, Related, Tishman Speyer, Trammell Crow, etc.) or a RE startup (i.e., Fundrise, RealtyShares, CADRE).
I graduated from a non-target state school with a 2.94 GPA in Economics and Business Administration. I was involved in clubs and organizations on campus and logged hundreds of volunteer/community service/community outreach hours. I was active in my fraternity and served on the e-board. I wish I had done better academically, but I allowed my personal problems to distract me from academic success.
Any advice on what I should do?
