Let's say I discuss jobs with a friend.
He tells me he would like to work for a firm.
(Let's say Microsoft or whatever.)
Their requirements are very high.
I doubt you will have any chance by this firm.
I only want to add 1 word, in this case by.
Could it be okay, or is there another word?
I doubt you will have any chance with this firm.
I doubt you will have any chance at this firm.
Or you could say,
I doubt you will be given any chance by this firm.
Small point, but it's more usual to say,
I doubt you will have any chance at that firm.
