Renewable Energy - Path to Corp Strat/Dev

Would a commercial analyst position at a renewable energy company allow me to eventually move into a corporate strategy/development role? My background consists of a non-target undergrad, top U.S. MSF, and I interned in investment banking (M&A). I interviewed for a few corp dev analyst positions out of my MSF but wasn't able to land offers. Is there anything else I should do to try and eventually move into corp strat/dev? I'll be taking CFA Level I this summer as well. Thanks in advance.
