I landed my first analyst job with a major CRE firm (think JLL, HFF, Cush) in a major market and it feels great. Coming from a non-target school and having to face 7 months of frequent rejection, I can finally say I found exactly the right gig working on my desired asset type (office).
With that being said, the last guy was fired... So I wanted to ask the WSO real estate forum what makes a great analyst and what makes a shitty one. Can anyone share any stories about their first weeks, months, or years on the job as an analyst in brokerage (or PE / Development). What are the Do's and Don'ts? Thanks.
