What do y'all think the chances of getting hired by a European office of a Big 4 (not one from my current employer) as an American citizen are? I'm guessing slim...

I know of a Pwc person who managed to get hired at the U.K. office. You can do it.

Close to zero unless you have a skill set that is needed but completely absent in Europe or are married to a European.

Practice your accent now, they won't hire you unless you can fake English / Australian / Japanese accents
