JTA offers ‘I Quit’ Kanye dancer a job

Last week, Marina Shifrin was somberly burning the midnight oil while tracking clicks, pageviews and shares. In a fitting move for Millenials, Shifrin announced her resignation with a YouTube dance video filmed at her office before she closed the lights and walked out the door.

Eleven-million-and-counting views later, Marina — a graduate of the University of Missouri’s School of Journalism – has already fielded some interesting offers, the latest from Queen Latifah.


Granted, everyone bows to Queen Latifah’s celebrity. But choose us and you won’t have to burn a vacation day for Rosh Hashanah.

Our most enticing group dance pitch appears below. Holler at us, Marina.

And hey, if Marina’s already covered, maybe you’d like to be on our radar yourself? Drop us a note! Email at the end of the video:
