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 waatmail@gmail.com.

Could you describe your job in short?

I work for a company that provides B2B marketing and sales solutions. I'm responsible for direct online sales as well as maximizing leads through different channels. This means leading a team of developers and designers, working closely with our media agency with marketing and running different marketing automation projects in close co-operation with our sales teams.

What do you do on average work day?

I'd start by checking my calendar, emails and Slack. During the day I would have multiple meetings and a lot of communication with different stake holders - related either to sales, marketing or web development.

Each day includes a daily with our developers, where I check how we're proceeding with different tasks and if further prioritization is needed.

What do you love about your job?

The versatility and being able to plan my days how I see best. I see exactly how many euros I'm bringing in the company with my team, which I find very rewarding.

What are the worst parts of your job?

Juggling many things at the same time means that there's constant need for prioritization and sometimes you can't do everything within the time you'd want to. However, it's not exactly a bad side, it's something you get used to along the way.

What are the most important skills in your job?

Analytical skills Communication Decision making Multitasking Pressure-handling

What are the most important tools/softwares in your job?

Microsoft PowerPoint Salesforce Trello Slack Google Analytics

How do you acquire and develop these skills?

Just by being curious and eager to learn and take responsibility. Through working experience and going beyond one's comfort zone.
