What am I supposed to be learning? New to development, a little lost.
Hey guys, new to development just recently started at a developer from a no name brokerage a few weeks ago. From my POV I feel as a development associate I should be working on modeling then other aspects of development that are needed at a small developer.
Currently I've been working on leasing up existing assets and some, new deals looking into zoning and taxes for initial deals, seeing what we can build, working on rent schedules for possible tenants as well as asset management my first few weeks in but not getting a lot of underwriting/modeling experience.
Is the considered the normal experience? I obviously want to keep improving and am learning about partnerships, different aspects of deals, but these guys also don't have the most experience around. I'm wondering is this sufficient enough experience or should I be learning more? Any of those currently in development that can chime in? I feel somewhat lost because there isn't a blueprint on what I should be learning since every developer is different, but then again if I'm at a large New York developer or nationwide developer they'd have a set program for those coming in with training.
