Would "What is your calling?" also be acceptable? Rationale: "roepen" = to call and "roeping" = vocation, calling.

Nope, it doesn't have the same meaning. A calling/roeping is definitely more than just a profession and it can also be unrelated to someone's job.

"What is your vocation." from vox / voca, Latin for "call(ing). could also be correct.
