Woman Quits Job by Dancing to Kanye West on YouTube

Will Quitting Her Job by Dancing to Kanye Hurt This Writer's Career?

Marina Shifrin certainly wasn't shy about telling the world she's quitting her job. The video she created to tell her boss she's quitting has gotten millions of views since she uploaded it Saturday.

In the video, Shifrin dances around her office at 4:30 a.m. to the beat of Kanye West's Gone, while subtitles explain the reasons for her resignation. She says, "For almost two years I've sacrificed my relationships, time and energy for this job. And my boss only cares . . . about quantity and how many views each video has."

Many are applauding Shifrin's bold move, which leads me to think that this viral video could potentially help Shifrin in her job hunt. What do you think — will employers see her as a worker who could embarrass them, or will they consider her a creative genius?

While I am envious of her dance moves and I think the video is very clever, I'm afraid the bad-mouthing of her boss will not bode well for her.
