RE Analyst Job out of College?

1 Reply

Hello, I am in my final year of college and will graduate with a degree in Finance. I want to move to a new state (Florida) afterwards and start my own way. My goal is secure a job as a real estate analyst at a commercial brokerage firm. I am not familiar with what an RE Analyst "ideal job candidate" looks like. Florida will be a relatively new place for me and I cannot leverage an existing network to get there.

How can I make myself more attractive to companies? Are there any certifications such as an ARGUS certification I should acquire? My resume will show that I graduated with a competitive GPA from Texas A&M University and that I have completed a "financial analyst" internship at a Fortune 500 company. Are there any line sentences that could be added to my resume that would advertise I am right for the job, if applicable of course. 

Welcome to BiggerPockets! Truly nice to meet you. Good luck going forward! Hope the best for you going forward in 2020!!

Congratulation of graduating soon from A&M. I think one of you biggest asset is you graduate from A&M. They take care of their own. (My sister is one). You might setup an alert that pick up on Commercial RE. Best of lucks!!
