I am currently in Retail Project Management (coming up on 2 years) right now and am looking to make a shift into real estate finance. My degree is in finance, and I am really looking to pair that degree with my passion for real estate investment. Any suggestions on how to make the transition? I am just concerned on how to sell my current experience to a finance-specific role. Any thoughts and comments are greatly appreciated!

I don’t think you need to sell it as finance, they will see through the smoke. Own it and sell your experience in real estate they will see it as an asset

Thank you - I appreciate the insight. Definitely will be forthright and honest about my work experience.

What level are you looking at and what geographic market? I see tons of real estate lenders looking to hire right now analyst/associate level for underwriting new loans as well as positions for asset managing loans on book. Especially in NY. Do you get the commercial mortgage alert (industry publication, but expensive if you don’t get it through work)? They usually have job listings in there. If not, LinkedIn has lots of openings too. I could see you being a great fit for those gigs with your background, especially if you’re willing to “start over” as an analyst.

Question for those of you who work in SALT/Private, from a former SALT professional: Would you be interested in a hybrid role combining accounting and SALT work? On the accounting side, you would perform bookkeeping and payroll functions. On the SALT side, it would be more heavily geared towards sales & use tax compliance, with the opportunity for some consulting work. Or would you prefer to just do one or the other?

I realized most of my anxiety or depression stems from a lack of career fulfillment.

My therapist made me aware of this but I'm looking for coping tools that someone in my situation has found useful. HELP!

A colleague shared with me the presentation they have prepared for their promotion case. I worked with them on multiple projects during the year and I can clearly see that some of the claims on the deck are wild exaggeration or lies. For example, managed changes in scope for Project X including contract changes. Plot twist: there never was a change of scope for Project X and the contract is exactly the same. How can people be so dishonest? How far can you go before truth catching up?
