Getting a job and the process of acquiring one is hard enough, securing one is even harder. The Kenyan market has proven to be a tedious place for anyone to get a decent job let alone securing an interview.
When the gods of luck are on your side, everything will work out for the good, on the flip side though, interviewers will just find something minute to slash you out. Over the years, interviewers have been looking beyond the nice suit and tie, even our latest qualifications and they are now questioning our Primary and Secondary exams.
What are employers looking for specifically when they want to inquire about your primary or secondary school performance? People have perceived that your school records can tempt an employer to judge your character. How true is that?
You have a Legitimate Original Degree Certificate with you. Why do you need to provide KCSE and KCPE Certificates at a Job interview? 🤔

Why would an employer care so much about a high school grade?
You know some employers may judge your academic record for assurance that you are intelligent, focused and capable of performing the job that’s why they also need your KCPE and KCSE certificate

I realized employers value your KCSE performance more than Degree. If you scored poorly in high school, they will be keen to know how that degree came about.

KCPE?? I would leave the interview.

Because having an Original Degree in this country may not be enough proof that one went through Primary and Secondary education. They are easily avilable for a fee.

Very important. No cert is legitimate till certified. Again u hv to show progression. One can do class 8 then buy a Masters degree. Progression is also abt performance consistency.

Depends with the employer, most check the two just to confirm if indeed you went through the two.
Though the world is moving at skills sets and ability to do the work than just the papers
