As the title says, would I be able to switch from commercial real estate to PE or IBD?
I'm in my first year out of school and long term want to get into PE but didn't get the offers I was looking for. The job description for a mid tier CRE broker seems to be a bit analytical, but primarily focuses on argus, not excel. I'd probably still have to practice some excel modeling on my own time (no problem I've taught myself most excel modeling that I know to date)
Aside from the anecdotal, "my cousin did it" If I have the real estate knowledge and experience that I can bring to the table, and can prove my financial and modeling know how is PE possible? Even if I have to go REPE-->PE?
My only concern is locking myself in a career path that I can't escape because it's too far down the road in one industry.
Appreciate any comments and feedback.
