  • So, what exactly do you do?

  • What are your work duties?

So, what exactly do you do? - You can say this when you are confused and unsure about what someone does for a living. "Exactly" is putting emphasis on the fact that you are unsure and want more details. You would ask this question with a confused expression.

work duties - these are the daily tasks of your job

  • What do you actually do every day?

  • What precisely does your job entail?

  • Could you talk me through a typical day?

Well, this is a very detailed question and with such questioning it is important to have a reason for this intense enquiry as this is not small talk or idle chat. You may be a workmate who will be taking over someone's work, for example. Otherwise, there is also the possibility that you may appear to be a nosy person with an unhealthy interest in someone else's life!
A: "What precisely does your job entail?"
B: "Well, I prefer not to talk about it right now."

  • What does your job entail?

*What does your job entail?
Entail is to involve.
For example: A job at a movie theater might entail sweeping popcorn off the floor, probably because watching a movie entails eating popcorn in the dark.
