I know there's been a lot said about this, what I wanted to get a feel for some more recent accounts people had. I'm wondering whether anyone has had any luck in transitioning from arole (accounting, operations, etc.) in larger PE shops into more roles, particularly in the real estate practices of these firms. I have a very good background for an available back office role (junior position, 1-2 years experience), but with a transition in mind later on, I'm wondering whether a lateral move like this is a good idea to begin with and if I'm better off trying to go to a smaller place to do something more relevant as an interim role (investment sales, debt/equity placement, etc.). Any input would be greatly appreciated.
