Master’s Degree Finalist Regrets Owning Over 30 Certificates to Sells Eggs
One notion I have always agreed with is that you don’t have to get into debt in the name of obtaining a certificate from school, to get a proper job. I was raised with the narrative that people are supposed to go to school, get educated then they will be guaranteed of a good future by securing a good job.
The truth of the matter is that times have changed, and nowadays securing a job seems to be the nearly impossible, let’s have a quick look at the story of Dennis Obilo who holds a diploma and degree certificate in Supply chain and procurement. He is a master’s degree finalist who lacks a proper job and is selling eggs to fend for himself.
There is nothing wrong with selling eggs, I believe that it is a profitable business, but someone with over 30 certificates and recommendations from different institutions should put his brains in doing better work other than selling boiled eggs in Nairobi.
30 years old Denis Obilo was born and raised in Migori county. His dad died while he was still young, and he was raised with a single mum who had no source of income and was overburden to feed his five siblings without a stable source of income.
Since Denis’ mum couldn’t afford to pay for his school fees, his dream to obtain education was almost shuttered, till a neighbor rescued him by introducing him to Mulli Children’s- Family home where they paid for his education, till he got a primary certificate in 2003 and secondary education certificate in 2007.
In 2010, Charles Muli, the owner of the children’s home, enrolled him for a diploma in Procurement and supply chain at Kenya Institute of Management. While on campus, he completed other short courses such as computer studies, driving, strategic and project management, HIV/AIDs guiding and counseling among more. In 2018 he graduated from the University of Nairobi with a bachelor’s degree in commerce supply chain management.
Denis regrets having accumulated over 30 certificates and his efforts in securing a stable job are futile. God has been faithful in his life, enabling him to come across people who have paid for his school education.
When you have invested yourself in education and still cannot get a stable source of income is discouraging.
