Woman who quit job in video offered new position

By Associated Press. CREATED Oct 4, 2013

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- A University of Missouri graduate who used a dance video to quit her job with a Taiwanese company has gotten an offer to work on the website of a daytime talk show.

Marina Shifrin of suburban Chicago became an Internet sensation after her choreographed performance to Kanye West's "Gone" was posted on YouTube.

She was a guest Thursday on Queen Latifah's talk show on the Fox Network. The host asked Shifrin if she wanted to work as a digital content producer on Latifah's website.

At first Shifrin thought Latifah was joking, but the host insisted she was serious. Latifah said a short interview would happen backstage.

The show ended without disclosing whether Shifrin had taken the position.
