Risk Analyst - Real Estate Credit
Had a call with a recruiter back in end of July for a Risk Analyst in Real Estate Credit role with a private multi billion dollar insurance company. Not the sexiest I know, but I am hoping this will not be perceived as a back office role.
Fast forward to Monday of this week and the external recruiter reaches back out to me after 5 weeks. Of course, I ask for details and get it out of him that the number one guy had an offer extended to him but declined, second guy backed out, and well 3rd guy is me (Hooray! ha).
Not surprisingly, they are looking to move fairly quickly at this point and have scheduled a call for this coming Monday with the hiring manager who has an MFE from Cal.
I was told to be prepared to at least touch on the current conditions of the residential mortgage market and also my SAS experience (don’t have a ton but heard I just need a basic understanding).
1) Does anyone here have positive thoughts on the current condition of the US residential real estate market? Because I am personally not too sanguine on it.
2) I have used SAS before, but honestly prefer Excel with Data Analysis Tool Pak add-on, solver, etc. Obviously do not want to say that I am not really a fan of it to the HM but are there any good resources I can use over the weekend to touch up and acquire a basic understanding of SAS?
Sorry for the long post, but any feedback is greatly appreciated!
