Hey. This is my first post after browsing and gleaning a huge amount of info from you guys. I am looking for advice here. My current position is, I have just graduated with a 3.8 with degrees in finance and real estate from Florida State University. I have accepted an offer for a graduate assistantship that cuts the cost of my masters degree in finance from 15.5K, to 3K.... I Obviously accepted because I have found that I actually like academics, and did not find the finance curriculum here challenging enough, so I would like to continue my education to the point where I actually feel as though I am really learning something I could not comprehend in a short amount of time by myself (not to sound like an arrogant asshole, but that's just what I feel). I want to get to the point where my professors become 100% necessary in my journey to attaining a higher level of knowledge.
I would love to get into commercial real estate acquisitions at an analyst role (as I understand it would not be feasible to go above analyst at the entry level). I am wondering what else I can do to help prove to firms that I am ready for the position, and receive an offer.
If anything I have said here violates the terms of membership for this site, please let me know and I will edit (or remove) the post as soon as I am made aware. Thank you.
