It is too early to guess what your "shot at employment" will be. That will depend entirely on factors that have not materialized yet. To analogize, it would be like a high school student writing his personal-statement essay and then asking what are his chances at getting into law school. Without his college GPA and LSAT score, you wouldn't have sufficient information to guess. Same here. Your experience and language skills will help, but other factors will matter more.
I agree with Morten about mid-sized firms hiring international students. I think that unless you find a niche firm and position yourself as an indispensable resource within that niche, it is unlikely you will find a mid-sized firm willing to take that gamble.
The four schools you listed are difficult to compare, employment-wise. In their respective locales, they each offer good prospects. Looking wider, all of them have names that will carry some degree of recognition in outside markets, but none of them have names that will command recognition. For instance, if you wanted to work in Miami, I don't think it would make any difference whether you chose Notre Dame or BC.
