I am going through the hiring process with McKinsey. I have done my 1st round of interviews. I am being interviewed for a BA position, however, this is because I applied almost 1.5 years ago and pushed back interviews until now. I have a non-business master degree from a reputable university in my country and upon starting with McKinsey I will hit the two years mark in my current job. My job is within the corporate innovation (business related job). Therefore, given these data points, would it be possible to negotiate changing my entry position from BA to JA or Associate? If yes, when? after receiving the offer or now?
Note: I have a backup plan to start my MPA in a top tier school and I plan to use that as negotiation tactics if it's feasible.
Looking forward to your answers.
