Skills before starting full-time

Hey fellow monkeys, recently I accepted an asset management role and will be starting this summer. I really want to hit the ground running and perform extremely well. Is there any preparation that I can do in advance to ensure that I excel? We will have Argus/Excel training once I join and I know that we will also be going through some case studies. But if there is anything that I can do to put myself ahead of the game, I definitely would be willing to go above and beyond. Appreciate the help.

Depends. If you're doing AM at a true PE fund a la Carlyle or Walton st. Capital, excel skills, hold/sell/refi, budget to actual variance analyses are the most important skills to learn.

For a more owner/operator type firm like Silverstein or Jamestown, brush up on your property accounting (lol), get used to managing legal docs, due diligence etc, sitting in on leasing calls
