I am trying to break into the world of CRE next summer after graduation and was wondering which of these tools would help my resume better stand out and also help me to gain a better knowledge of the world of CRE and what I would be doing on a day to day basis. As of now I am looking towards the analyst side of the business but would not mind the broker side either (possibly down the road?).
The two options I'm looking at are taking the CFA level 1 (in the winter) or taking a real estatecourse (the best I've heard are Kahr and REFM). If both would be beneficial, I would definitely consider doing that as well.
Any and all help is much appreciated. Thanks.
