Beginning a career in CRE advice
How's it going, I'm currently a junior in college studying finance. I'm looking to break into CRE by doing an internship this coming summer. I have a couple questions related to starting in CRE.
How does one decide the right market to start their career in. It seems that in real estate most end up in the town they begin at (is this true) due to their connections built.
My school is connected with the local CRE association which lands students internships in the area. The problem is, I've been in the area all my life (pre k - college) I want to experience a new area and leave the comfortability of the old. Should I try to land an internship in the area since I have no experience? Then upon graduation try to move to a more preferred area. Or skip the local internship as a whole and find one in a desired city.
