Current PwC consulting in Europe looking for job in the USA

Hi everyone,

Here's some info on the background:

I have been working at PwC Advisory (financial services Consulting, Risk and compliance practice) in Paris for almost 3 years. I am a French and a Mexican national. I have a BA and an MA in Humanities from the Sorbonne University and a 1 year masters in business that I completed while working part-time at PwC. It is not a prestigious degree.
I would like to go to the US to work in a similar consulting firm. I have a preference for Chicago or Minneapolis (given the relatively low cost of living and the fact that my partner is from the Midwest) but I am open to other cities.

Do you think it is possible for me to get a job either at PwC or at other similar consulting firm (EY, KPMG, Deloitte, AT Kerney)? What other firms should I consider applying to?

Also, I will need a TN Visa to work in the USA (work Visa for Mexicans and Canadians). Has anyone had an experience applying for this type of Visa? Are recruiters very reluctant?

Thanks in advance for your help!

I can't say for sure (so I can only speculate) but I'd imagine you would be able to get a job at any of the Big 4 with your background. Also, the Big 4 are probably the best bet you'll have to sponsor your work Visa.
