(CBS SF/AP) – A University of Missouri student 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 KPIX 5. 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. Lafitah said a short interview would happen backstage.

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

“The Queen Latifah Show” can be seen KPIX 5 weekdays at 2:00pm.
