I think what job do you do should also be valid

What is your profession? should be valid

What type of work do you do should also be acceptable.

Or simply "What work do you do?"

What do you do for work should be valid.

What do you work should also be acceptable

People really don't say, "What do you work." They say instead, "What kind of work do you do?"

But that adds a tiny bit and so is not a translation.

Why is it wrong to say: What job do you do?

Surely 'what job do you do' is a more accurate translation than 'what is your job' yet I was marked wrong for this.
