Are you in the awkward phase between school and what’s next? Do you have zero clue about what to do with your life? 

 

Alana Kilmartin understands the struggles that school leavers face and the pressure you can feel to stick to one career path. Using her own experiences, in this book she debunks common career myths and offers a fun and revolutionary approach to your early career.

 

Alana takes you through 11 practical actions that can help you navigate the transition into your twenties like a pro. From taking a gap year to living somewhere new to getting ridiculously people-smart, this book shows you how to experiment your way to an epic and fulfilling career

 

Written specifically for school leavers and parents navigating the transition with them, Unserious Careers fills in the gaps about the world of work that school probably missed.

Do any of these sound like you?

  • You feel like your career has been decided by your parents, your school or your grades.

  • You feel overwhelmed by the pressure to decide on a career path and are freaking out about making the wrong decision

  • You’re applying to university because everyone expects you to go but you don’t know if it is actually for you. 

  • You’re excited for your friend who is kicking career goals but also jealous because you don’t have your sh*t together.

  • You are concerned about how a gap year will impact your career and whether it will put you behind everyone else.

 

By telling-it-like-it-is, this book will show you how to approach your career when you have no f*cking idea what you’re doing with your life. It will give you the info school missed because they were teaching you stuff you’ll never use (like Pythagoras’ Theorem).

FLIP YOUR CAREER IDEAS UPSIDE DOWN.
STOP WASTING YOUR AWESOMENESS ON A CAREER YOU DON'T EVEN WANT.
AVOID CAREER FOMO.
READ UNSERIOUS CAREERS.

  • Do something that doesn’t make sense to anyone but you

  • Change your mind 50 times. 

  • Try 10 jobs and decide none of them are for you.
