I ask him ,her of name ,job, and where are u from

I'd been working as hr in a large company for a long time before I went on maternity leave.
Meeting people and first talking to them on behalf of the company were my responsibilities. If I have not seen a person before, I asked him to tell about himself, then talked about the company:
- about the company profile
- about the company's development strategy
- about the target market
- about existing clients
- about the company's products - about the technologies
- about the organizational structure
- about the corporate portal
- about the internal work schedule
- about social guarantees
- about the traditions of the company meetings.
I've always really enjoyed having such meetings.

while i meet a new person and we have a little time together firest i ask him/her,"what are you want to do?" and he/she answer and continue and at last we itruduce ourself to each other.

we talk about our hobbies and job. I always ask where he or she comes from

When I meet people first time, talking about your name and offer to him a nice joke, then I will start to know for about him .

When I meet a person for the first time, I usually ask where he is from, what he is doing in life and if he wants to do what he is doing.

Usually, when I meet people for the first time, I talk about my family, my country, my last job. Also, I talk my interests.

first of all when i meet with someone new i will ask about it mean that how he/she feels here and then ask about name, country, hobbies and about works and what they are like and dislikes.

When I first met my collegue, I introduced myself about my title and my responsibility of my job. Also I asked her/him about her/his status of job title, hobbies or department.

I usually talk about nationality, work and hobbies.
