(Even when you are setting up your first date on Match.com, you are, at some level, sizing up this person as a potential spouse; the same is true with a boss.
And if you haven’t been “out there” in a while, let me give you a romantic refresher, straight from the emails of candidates I have sent you as a recruiter; these candidates told me to tell you they will pass on your opportunity, thank you very much.
