About the Podcast

Unserious Careers
Stories / tips / tricks on how to get Unserious about your career when you leave school
Unserious Careers is the podcast for school leavers and early 20-something year old's. Listen to stories about gap years, travel and how to use living as the best way to not find yourself working in a job you hate. I'll share my stories and bring on fun guests to share theirs.


I'm Alana Kilmartin: a former wannabe-doctor and current snowboarder. I was labelled a nerd at school but I gained some extra cool points in my 20s (I think...or maybe I don't care). I realised sh*t had got way too serious in my career and that all the stuff I'd been told at school about work was way off. I'm now wildly passionate about entertaining with my stories, exposing career loopholes and inspiring young people to take gap years. Giddy up.
