I'd appreciate your thoughts about how to reach my career goal. In 7-8 years I'd like to open CRE private equity fund which invests in add-value properties.
In order to learn this business I believe one should learn RE from the ground and thus, I've been working as a PM for about 2 years in NYC while completing my BA finance, minoring RE and economics, degree in a medicore school (3.85 GPA, I'll finish in May 2020). In order to transfer to the financial side of RE, I found an internship at a large CRE sales brokerage company as a mortgage analyst (earning minimum wage in comparison to my PM job where I earned almost triple than that).
After reading many discussions for best path to work in REPE it seems as the best way is through IB. - Do you think that with this kind of experience I have a chance?
Also, I'm investor myself - own a property outside the US and own two duplexes in PA.
Would you suggest for me to stay with the current intership or look for another job - if so, which one? Although the question is pretty vague, I'm open to do anything in order to get the to right experience.
