No, unless you count that at the time they meet Lois is working for the DP.

Actually if you look at the Clark and Lois meetings in MOS and SV in some ways they are opposites, with at least Lois's situation very similar to L&C. In L&C Lois barely acknowledges Clark when they first met, Lois is an award winning journalist, who has been a war correspondant, and the top ranked journalist at the planet. Clark has spent the last few years moving from job to job in large part to keep his secret safe.

In SV Lois and Clark meet as high school students.

In MOS, Lois barely acknowledges Clark when she first meets him, she is an award winning journalist (arguably having won bigger awards, in L&C the Pulitzer is her hoped for future, in MOS her past), who has been a war correspondant (this is more obvious in MOS, in L&C you only learn that Lois was a war correspondant from her Kerth Awards, and you maybe can read them by freeze-framing a shot from one TV show, or you can go and dig up the transcriptions of what they said put up on the internet by a devote fan who toured the set). Clark has spent the last few years moving from job to job, in part to keep his secret safe. Actually the biggest different is that Lois ignoring a baggage handler at a government dig site is not quite the same as her ignoring a potential work college.
