    I wanted to know if anyone has ever gotten a phone call interview by applying to any of the Big4s websites. I know the best way is to meet a recruiter on campus or know someone. As an outsider applying online I'd like to know if I even have a chance lol

    Yeah, I applied online and got the job. You don't need to know anyone if your background is a strong fit for the position. It's quite common for experienced hires.

    I have applied on line as a graduate and got their attention. But I think that it was pure luck and nothing else

    I read somewhere that PWC only hires 2% of applicants. I’m sure the other big 4 are around the same ballpark. You’re better off attending a recruiting event at your campus, or finding a way to meet a recruiter in person. Try looking them up on LinkedIn or something to that degree. Once you have their email address you can send them your polished resume and cover letter. This approach is far more effective than just sending an online application. I hope this helps
