I am new to the site and Real Estate investing in general. I graduated from college in 2020 and am currently enrolled in a Business Masters program. After I graduate from the program in May I am going to take a year off from school and then continue my education in 2022 at a Law school somewhere on the east coast. Essentially I have a year off between May 2021 and September 2022. I want to use this year off to learn as much as I can about real estate, specifically rental real estate. What jobs/what should I do when I graduate in May? What would you do as a 23 year old with a year off? Something related to the finance behind real estate? Renovation related skills? Totally lost, have applied to big commercial real estate internships but do not know what to do! Help!
