Having a phone interview with chief development officer at a small firm, which is diversified in multi family, mixed use, master planned communities. I have a finance degree, have been in a financial analyst role (basically glorified accounting) doing forecasting and reporting for the last few years so I'm hopeful I have transferable skills there and from what I've heard so far, the cultures seem similar. I'm really shocked I even landed this interview since my lack of working in real estate is usually a deal breaker. The recruiter said that's the only thing that would blow my chances cause no one wants to have to hand hold me. I've taken a real estate finance class and I'm not a complete noob so I want to convey my interest and willingness to learn on my own without seeming desperate.
What types of questions to expect? If the phone interview goes well i would go meet the guy in person too. so I'm thinking this first convo would be more of a personality fit?
Any advice or tips on development analyst interviews --please send this way. I can pm description but it seems like doing financial analysis of current and potential acquisitions, reports, overall dipping into a bit of everything to Segway into a development manager position
