As many people ask themselves waaaat they should do for work of in life in general, waat wants to make finding answers to these questions easier. Waat’s purpose is to offer information about what kinds of professions there are in the world, What people actually do in these professions, and how they like what they do.

FOR high-schoolers and STUDENTS, waat would like to make them to pay attention to two things - to think about the actual daily work they would be doing in a few years (not only about what it would be like to study, that’ll last a while). ALSO, it’s important to think what you would actually enjoy doing. disliking something 8 hours/day sounds insane!

NEW DATA WILL BE ADDED ALL THE TIME, the eventual purpose being covering all possible professions from cleaners to cheese sculptors to politicians. In case you have any questions of feedback about waat, please contact

Could you describe your job in short?

Working as shiatsu massagist on my own for me. Giving treatments and guiding in different problems, tips to help to handle pain etc.

What do you do on average work day?

Every day is very different. Sometimes I work from early hours until late evening, sometimes I only have a couple of customers per day. There are also days without any customers.

What do you love about your job?

Being able to help people. Make them feel good. Most of the customers are really happy when they leave. Giving treatments nourishes you yourself also, you get energy out of it.

What are the worst parts of your job?

If customer cancels the time on the same day. Customers don't quite understand the whole picture of how the treatment works. They don't want to take part of recovering by getting involved themselves, they just want someone to push the button and believe that was it. They are scared if someone gets beyond the real problem, and then they stop coming.
