Did You Interview With the Top Boss?

Serena further explores her decision to defer Brown to "find herself" on this week's Gossip Girl and decides to find a job to prove her seriousness to her mother. She puts on a stunning Herve Leger bandage skirt and blazer and scurries around town scoping out prospects.

In one scene, she interviews with designer Tori Birch, who was just one of the many special guests on the episode. The interaction was sweet and emphasized how under-prepared Serena is for the working world, but I couldn't help but think it's a bit far fetched to have a major designer meet with potential intern or entry-level applicant. Did you interview with the top boss or company owner when you got your job, or did you meet with a hiring manager?

I work for a Fortune 25 company, and entered in right out of college, so no. :)

At my current company it was a 4 step process ending with the owner/CEO.

No, not for this position.In my first job there was a total of 8 employees, so after my 1st interview with the hiring manager I did interview with the CEO, but that's just because it was such a small company.

I had to have multiple interviews, starting with HR, moving up to the department supervisor, and finally with the big boss. That's pretty much standard where I work.

i didn't interview with the top boss but then again it wasn't for a position that really merited meeting with him. i think that if it was for a very senior position then i probably would have.
