I am the PhD placement director. 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).
PhD students are encouraged to learn LaTex for the research papers and even their homework assignments. I will share more links here regrading LaTex soon. I recommend Overleaf for an internet based LaTex platform. But I also use TexShop on my mac.
