Last week we welcomed 7 new people to join our LABUR team! We have Anthony Avallone, Tate Rietkerk, Alicia Mroczkowski, and Margaret Maver joining as full time Sourcers. We also have Matt Hart, Pearl Rincon, and Samuel Spingola joining as 2022 Northeastern CoOps. All 7 are jumping right into the work and getting ready to start making calls very soon.

We wanted to take this opportunity to welcome our new Delivery Team members and offer some insights into why they decided to join the team here at LABUR. Meet our June 2022 New Hires below!


Matt Hart

What is your major and are you a part of any clubs on campus? I am a Business Administration major with a Management concentration

What is the biggest benefit of participating in the Northeastern Co-Op program? Learning. Not only am I able to graduate with a full year of experience but I also get a better understanding of how to interview for a job, make professional connections, and how to act professionally in a work setting. These are things you need to experience and can’t just learn from a PowerPoint. I specifically wanted to go to Northeastern so I could experience this CoOp program.

What are you looking to take away from a CoOp with LABUR? I am hoping to build a really strong professional network so I can have professionals that I can go to for advice or help in the future. And it would be great if I could get a full-time job from this experience as well.

Pearl Rincon

What is your major and are you a part of any clubs on campus? My majors are International Affairs and International Business. On campus I am a part of the taekwondo club where I am the Events Coordinator. I am also a part of the Coalition Against Sexual Assault on campus.

What is the biggest benefit of participating in the Northeastern Co-Op program? I am really grateful for the real-world experience you get by participating in the Northeastern CoOp program. There are so many programs that you can participate in that are so rich and fulfilling.

What are you looking to take away from a CoOp with LABUR? I am eager to build on and work on my relationship building skills, and I think working at a place like LABUR where I am making meaningful relationships everyday will help me grow as a professional.

Samuel Spingola

What is your major and are you a part of any clubs on campus? My major is Business Admin with a Finance concentration. I am in a fraternity, captain of club baseball team, and started a personal finance club to educate peers of financial literacy and create a community for those who want to learn more about personal finance.

What is the biggest benefit of participating in the Northeastern Co-Op program? Each CoOp you learn something extremely valuable. You either learn “this is not what was I was expecting” and “this is not what I want to do in the future,” or you learn that this is what you can see yourself doing in the future. Clearly both options are super helpful for you to understand your personal and professional goals. I have already gained a lot of knowledge from the CoOp program and know that there is more I can learn.

What are you looking to take away from a CoOp with LABUR? I am hoping to take skills and experiences from first CoOp and then bring it to CoOp at LABUR. Also, I want to be able to add as much value to the team as I can to help them move business forward.

Alicia Mroczkowski

Why did you choose to work at LABUR? There were two main things that drew me to LABUR. First, meeting so many of the team members during the interview process was great and I got to see that they are a true cohesive team that is driven. That is something I did not see at other companies and really excited me about LABUR. Also, I really wanted to move to Boston and finding a Boston-based company like LABUR was great.

What was your degree in college and what was your favorite class you took? I was a Marketing major and minored in Information Systems. My favorite professor I had at Loyola Maryland was Mark Hubbard who taught an International Business class and a Strategic Management class. He made the work that they did in the class feel very real-world and I walked away from both of his classes feeling like I had gained a lot of knowledge.

What are you looking forward to as you start your career? I am really excited to get into the workforce! But I am especially excited to work with people on a daily basis and make a true impact on their lives and careers.

Margaret Maver

Why did you choose to work at LABUR? I had interviewed with a lot of companies and really enjoyed everyone at LABUR and how they loved the work that they do here.

What was your degree in college and what was your favorite class you took? I was a Business Management major, and Negotiations was my favorite class because it really challenges me on negotiating skills and helped me build confidence with it as well.

What are you looking forward to as you start your career? I am looking forward to building and growing my own professional network and I am excited to be in a people focused business.

Anthony Avallone

Why did you choose to work at LABUR? When I came into the office to interview with LABUR I really liked the tight environment and that everyone has amble opportunity to learn and grow on a daily basis.

What was your degree in college and what was your favorite class you took? I was a Finance major and Theology 101 was my favorite class that I took because it really made me think about myself and the world around me.

What are you looking forward to as you start your career? I am looking forward to seeing how I change and grow as a person and a professional.

Tate Rietkerk

Why did you choose to work at LABUR? I really liked everyone I interviewed with at LABUR and I liked the overall energy and sense of togetherness I immediately felt from everyone at LABUR.

What was your degree in college and what was your favorite class you took? I was a Communications major and I minored in Econ. My favorite class was American Politics because I had a really good professor who, even with it being a lecture, made the class very collaborative and engaging for every person in the class.

What are you looking forward to as you start your career? I am hoping to get a better sense of the business world. In college I did not have specific career goals but, now that I have begun my career, I am looking forward to building these goals and then watching them as I continue to grow in my career.
