My company currently has several positions open, so I've been doing a [i]lot [/i]of interviewing lately. Most of the people I'm talking to are not going to be reporting to me, so I'm maybe the third of fourth person they speak to. Usually, the previous interviewer brings the candidate to my office after finishing up.
Invariably, the colleague bringing the candidate to my office introduces me by my full name, and often my title. So here's my question: when I go to shake the candidate's hand, should I re-introduce myself--say, "Hi, I'm Cory" even though my colleague just said my name?
I remember a recent post Mark made about Condi Rice introducing herself, even though she's one of the most famous people in the world. I am, by no means, famous. However, I feel awkward re-introducing myself after just being introduced.
Anybody have thoughts?
