Just started as an analyst in "asset management" at a small REPE shop recently. I am a little disappointed as I notice the role wasn't exactly what I expected since it is a small owner operator my responsibilities include more budgeting, rent rolls, pricing tenant leases, and basically overseeing the property managers rather than traditional AM (no dispositions, valuations). Luckily we are currently doing a lot of deals and the acquisitions intern just left for a month for college break (he worked 2 full days a week). My question is with my goal of ultimately ending up in acquisitions, would it be acceptable to ask if I could assume the interns role while he is out since we are currently doing a lot of deals? Even though I am so new.
Thanks for any input
