First off, this is my first post on WSO and I'd greatly appreciate any help you can bring to the table. I'm really confused in my career path right now and just looking for some guidance. I worked at a big-4 accounting firm for 4 years in audit and left as a senior associate. I also got my CFA at this time. I mainly audited capital markets/hedge funds there and then took a job at a small hedge fund as the Controller working directly under CFO. I've worked there approximately 4 years and I've learned mostly everything so looking for some other opportunities. I've always been interested in real estate but not having any real estate clients/experience and also being in accounting, i was wondering how difficult it would be to transition into a real estate company. My end goal would be to hopefully take part in some real estate deals and earn a percentage of the deal. Could anyone please let me know if it's possible and what I should be looking for to do with a recruiter?
