PhD Placement

For many years I was the PhD placement director for the economics PhD program at Northeastern.  Northeastern places its economics PhD students at top consulting companies, top government agencies (FTC, FCC, World Bank, FRB Banks, etc.), and excellent colleges and universities. The program trains students in industrial organization, labor, development (and sometimes macro).  See the economics department web page for placement information.


I strongly encourage PhD students to learn LaTex for writing their research papers and even for their homework assignments. I recommend Overleaf for an internet based LaTex platform. I also recommend Writefull which is an AI based writing add-on application for Overleaf and Word.
