So i was laid off recently from my job in financial services. I have zero experience in real estate, but am interested in development and was thinking of doing a career pivot. I am in my mid-30s and am concerned about job prospects once graduating from a program since I dont have any experience. I've read some other discussions saying it's all about networking, and better to have some industry experience, i get that, but with my profile, am i going to be ignored by all companies basically once i look for a job?
I have a 700 gmat, low 3 gpa from 14 years ago, worked in financial services with focus on hedge funds/tech/risk, and want to leave because my role and industry dont have much upward mobility. i'd love to work at a company like Related, would be a dream, as well as smaller firms which is probably more realistic, re-developing properties, revitalizing areas that are cheap but have potential
thanks in advance
