Here’s my resignation “letter”:
Glad to see you found what you wanted. Rock on!
I spent two wonderful internships at MSFT. I loved my job over there and how the team said goodbye for me. After watching your video I regret that I haven’t made such awsome goodbye.
Life is too short to work at a job you don’t like!
You’ve got a beautiful voice.
Judging by the creativity of this song any company would be luck to have you.
Wow! You totally got featured on Techcrunch. Way to go, even though that may not have been your immediate intention it’s still pretty darn cool. As a former Seattle-ite give it a hug for me.
Kick butt at Justin.tv
Love the parody!!! Always keep that contagious smile in whatever you do! It sure as heck kept me smiling during the duration of your song! <3
love it. very creative.
Lovely voice and GREAT parody! Great wishes in your next endeavor!
You’re very pretty, you have a gorgeous voice, and you can play an instrument. Best of luck to you with your new job, any company would be privileged to have you
Very creative Karen! I like the guitar too, if I knew what type it is, I’d go look for one
good luck with your new job
Emmanuel, Paris (France)
Totally cool and awesome! All the best to you! Good luck!
this is the BEST farewell I’ve seen in 20 years at msft! good luck.
Congratulations! You certainly have the talent and best of all a good imagination! Reach for the sky. Leadership is a lonely profession but as Ken Olsen, Founder of Digital Equipment Corporation, (DEC) told me “If everyone agrees with you then you are not leading or managing” Best of luck!!!
Awesome way to resign. Based on the creativity, you need to be a designer!!! Good luck in your endeavor down here in the Bay Area!!!
We are lucky to have someone like you join the awesomeness that is the Bay Area!!!
(Yeah, a lil biased!!!)
I like your song.
Be happy with your new job.
Have a nice day.
Wow ! Quelle brillante idée que cette chanson de départ, exécuté avec brio et une joie de vivre contagieuse.
Bravo Mme. Cheng
You are amazing… Best wishes for your future.
Nice voice ; )
Well done … Now if I ever lunch Excel again; I would think of this
Awesome song! Was sad there wasn’t a twitter feed listed. Welcome to SF!
This made me smile.
Just better without Micro$oft!! Nothing to regret later!
Great song, great voice! You made my day with this video, so I just want to say thank you! And good luck with your new job!
Patrik Järvelöv, Sweden
At least you can go on one of the talent shows if the start up doesn’t work out ! gl
I read Taiwanese news to find your blog. Good job! Here is news link:
You probably have already known by now that your resignation ‘letter’ has been featured on really popular sites like Gizmodo and Neatorama. You’re an inspiration. Not just because of your talents, but your record on Linkedin also motivates the hell out of me as a uni freshman. For now, I’ll be hoping working harder to get there.
I wish you all the best for your future endeavors.
See you at the top!
Good parody and very nice voice!
I will never use Excel again without thinking of this song. Thanks!
You are famous now! Your video being in many news sites. Seeing the video, I think the designer role suits you more.
suerte y enhorabuena por tu creativa e innovadora despedida. Good luck Karen.
I’ve heard you are a programmer, but why are you fairly attractive? And another, quite personal question: why did you or your parents leave your homeland? Prosperity? Success?
Do you want a land of milk and honey? A land of freedom? A land where people come from rags to riches?
Or maybe a land what democracises everyone? A land that bombs civilians? Or a land that takes drastic measures at every hot spot?
A land where everyone is welcome, except middle americans who are shot down at fences? Or a country for whose money soldiers die a miserable death all over the world?
A land that launchs shuttles into the space? That sprays Agent Orange over a whole nation? That compel respect for its views with torture, murder and threatening gestures?
The most beautiful land on earth, where the pacific curls on golden beaches? Where the people hold bliss in their hands. Maybe you wanted to live there, because it pleases you.
THis is awesome!!! I wish you the very best in San Fran…. I’m going through the same thoughts at my company….could use some advice?:)
