Directly meeting and introducing yourself to people is the most common way and a common motif in the working culture of today’s companies. In order not to be confused and surprised, be prepared in advance. Except for those with good communication skills and eloquence, you should prepare what you need to say.

Therefore, take notes on paper what you need to say. If possible, practice in front of a mirror at home.
