You may actually find love in your work place and that too in your direct reporting boss.
There have been instances of successful love stories that have some out of office dating too.
If you want to be considered, you have to abide by the employer’s application process, just as you did when you applied to college.
But based on the thousands of people I’ve seen hired, fired and promoted over the years, GPA and SAT scores are no predictor of job performance — so unless they’re required, I’d leave them off.

To date your boss is not the smartest things to do unless you are an incorrigible opportunist.
However love comes in all sorts of (pay)packages so there can never be a total right or wrong answer in this case.

If he gets divorced, and you want to start a relationship, find another job — and date like normal people with normal dating complications.
A decade ago their romance would have been expressly forbidden.
(You know the old saying about not, um, where you eat.) But as more Americans postpone marriage until their careers are established—and as hours get longer, with smartphones blurring work and play—it makes sense that attitudes are changing.
