1) To ask someone what their job is, you would usually say "Кем вы работаете?" (formal) or "Кем ты работаешь?" (informal).

2) To talk about your job, you can just say, for example,  "Я  программист" (I'm a programmer). You don't need a verb. There's also another way of saying what your job is, but as it's a bit more complicated,  we'll talk about it next time!
