Having worked with the Internal CDD team in deals (I’m in TAS), the junior folks are nothing but gate keepers and email traffic cops. So it’s likely not about ability .. just got to network your way in. Or apply externally to those roles.

Unfortunately that’s been my experience with them. Appreciate the input

May have better opportunity transitioning to FDD. Unless it’s basically straight out of college it’s tough to do without prior experience
