On a Thursday afternoon, in room 441 on the forth floor of building E23, three spouses, Irena Stojkov, Marija Simidjievska, and Barbara Lipohar Staples, along with Senior Program Manager Jennifer Recklet Tassi, sat with Thom Dunn from MIT Annual Fund in front of a video camera. They were shooting a video clip for the Crowdfund MIT website, a pilot crowdfunding platform similar to Kickstarter, to garner funding for MIT spouses&partners’ Career Connect program. Irena, Marija, and Barbara, all from Europe, are active participants in S&P, especially Career Connect. They wanted to learn the etiquette of approaching the US job market. Resuming career or engaging in personal growth is a major pursuit among the spouses and partners at MIT.
