Is this really where I want to be..?
I've been working at a CMBS special servicing firm (Top 3) as an analyst in the portfolio management arm for about 10 months now. Before I graduated from undergrad in May, I interned here and was offered a full time position starting in June. Since then I have found my job to be more or less easy and quite boring honestly. I was comfortable with the fact that I had a secure job after graduating with a decent starting pay and a job somewhat centered in Finance. After careful thought, I've come to the realization that this might not be what I want in the long term.
The skills that I'm learning are okay, I guess, but I know that most of it is not transferable. I have been brushing up on my excel skills (VBA, Macros, some modeling) on my own time the last couple months.
I know that moving to other departments at my company might be reasonable in the future but what I really want to do is position myself to get into a more Corp. Finance role that concentrates more on financial analysis. Would my exp/skills be transferable to such areas like corp finance, traditional AM not RE-AM, or a role in PE? Or would my real estate background pigeon hole me into roles concentrated just in RE?
Yes, I do realize that I may be stretching a little to far here, but I'm more or less concerned about my future. To put it more plainly, should I be concerned about being pigeon holed in RE? If so, what are some options and routes I should consider taking that would provide me with some exit opps?
