Just graduated from a non target in a suburban area and I am trying to decide between two offers to start off my career in real estate:
-Acquisitions analyst at a top pension fund (think CalSTRS): fund is invested in half direct properties (JV deals/separate accounts) and half commingled funds
-Analyst at a Private equity fund (1B AUM): Workload would be half acquisitions, half asset management
End goal is to stay in acquisitions at a private equity fund in a major city NYC/BOS/SF (currently in a rural town) -- So wondering which of these offers would set me up best/take me farthest.
Any help would be appreciated! Thanks.
