McKinsey has opened an "expert" consultant role in the industry that I'm working, while at the same time having a generalist role (experienced hire; associate) opened. I'm wondering whether it's recommended to apply both? I prefer being a generalist but at the same time was thinking maybe expert role would be slightly easier to get an offer.
If I get the offer of "expert" role, does it mean that I will have to stick to this specific industry without being able to participate in projects of other industries? Thanks a lot!
