Most CPA holders are people who have joined Colleges/Universities and have decided to supplement their Accounting Degree/Diploma Courses with a CPA. The other group of people includes those who have not been to any College/University and they have decided to enroll in a CPA Course first.

The good news about those who are already in the University/ College pursuing a CPA and those who have not yet gone to college is that the starting salary of a CPA holder in Kenya is roughly the same.

Does experience matter when it comes to determining the starting salary of a CPA Holder in Kenya?

Having a CPA course is considered to be a very valuable and most of the time experience is necessary for you to land a job as it is with all other careers.

In as much as a CPA is a solid course, you should have some working experience as an Intern especially with companies with a Finance or Accounting Department.

An internship will give you an edge over other candidates when it comes to applying for jobs. In a sense, previous work experience as an intern in Equity Bank, for example, will determine your starting salary as a CPA holder in Kenya.

Which jobs do entry level CPA holders get in the Kenyan Job Market?

I gathered information from a HR Professional and according to them; a person having a CPA and 0 years of work experience will often start working as an Accounts Assistant.

After working as an Accounts Assistant, you are promoted to a Junior Accountant, a Senior Accountant and the most senior Accounting Position is the Finance Director.

All these positions come gradually after practising an Accountant for a good number of years.
