From Advertising to Real Estate
Trying to get an idea of what my chances are and what next steps I should take. Background: I have a social science undergrad and an MBA from a bottom of the barrel University. I was fortunate enough to do one internship at boutique a M&A firm, always with the intention to get a job in real estate. After graduation, the job hunt didn't really pan out and I had to start working quickly. Apprehensively I settled for a job as a data analyst at large marketing agency. After 2 years, things are going well. I've had a few promotions and learned a lot of technical skills, but I hate the ad industry and want to start doing something I'm passionate about.
My question is, whats the best way for me to get into real estate? I'm considering a few options: Start fresh as a commercial broker; Pursue a CPA and enter through the financial side; Pursue a CFA and apply and network like crazy or; get a job at a bank or large RE firm as a data analyst.
Any Advice? What are my chances?
