How much do you or can you make in this industry...?
If you aren't
1) on the Ivy/Target --> IBanking bandwagon
2) have any personal connections in the industry
I started my career about a year ago after taking a break after undergrad. I'm up to about 80K+ bonus right now working in real estate software technology. I'm getting better on the software side which is opening up more opportunities with that, and am wondering if I should close out my efforts in finding a job in real estate finance? All the job offers I've received on that side are in the 45-65K range.
I like the idea of moving in either direction, but I just want to fully understand the opportunity on the finance side for a guy like me that is 27 y/o and still not in the finance world, but has a high IQ
