I'm currently getting my MBA and looking for an internship in CRE because I used to trade residential mortgages at one of the GSEs. I've gained traction especially with people on the capital markets side.
Can someone tell me how the career path is in capital markets? From my understanding now, it's calling lenders for money, selling the story of the project, and taking 75bps commission. In the beginning, salary is going to be low but in 2-3 years, good capital markets people can close 12 or more deals a year.
