How to be (less) Awkward: My favorite small talk opener to someone I just met is: "What are you up to these days?" The question is general enough that the other person can interpret it as they wish - if they want to talk about work, they can share new projects; if they want to talk about their family, they can; if they want to talk about a new hobby or recent vacation, they can answer it that way. "What are you up to these days?" also usually gets more interesting answers than asking someone "what do you do for work?" which in the best case scenario is someone just rattling off their company name and job title, and worst case scenario can be awkward for someone not currently in the labor market to answer.
