I am trying to break into Blackstone's real estate PE or BREDS. I wanted to pick your brain on the background they are looking for (i.e. school, skill set, former employer). I did research on Linkedin and I see half of the people (with a little bit of exaggeration) are from non-target schools but the vast majority came from BBs. It will be appreciated if you share some facts you know anything about it. Also, please don't hesitate to mention any skillset I should improve. Thanks.
P.S. I am from a non-target state school and have no BB experience. 1 Year REIT 1yr small bank credit analyst and been working for 1.5 yr at a boutique RE IB/AM company.
