McKinsey & Company when applying for a BA role, is it best to indicate interest in the areas for which it asks (M&A, Risk, etc.)? It gives the option to select interested, somewhat interested, or not interested. Are these functional alignments for after the 2 years as BA? Thank you in advance!

BAs are not aligned to functions. They come as generalists and can build their expertise in any of the functions they are interested in

Yes after some time, you can get proficiency badges L1/L2 etc. To get aligned with a industry. In that process of getting the proficiency I believe you’re also paired with mentors. Also M3, not a lot are aligned already. I think majority start as generalists unless they are laterals?

Some practices have BA's aligned to that particular one (like McKinsey Digital). But most don't and if you're applying to a generalist position, you don’t specialize until a little later

Hi! First time working with a larger company - suggestions on handling pronouns at work? I’ve worked with smaller agencies where it was easier to bring up. Now I’m on a larger team, talking to/referencing people I’ve never met. I’m less concerned about my own pronouns and more concerned about how to make sure I’m using the correct pronouns for the people I work with. I’ve been structuring sentences to avoid gender specific pronouns but would love to hear suggestions. Thanks!
