This study measures and compares the access to a job interview provided by two vocational degrees, ceteris paribus: a Certificat d’Aptitude Professionnelle (CAP), below A-level, and a vocational baccalauréat (A-level). The evaluation is performed on experimental data collected for plumbers and waiters between April and July 2011 in Paris area. Results highlight that the access to a job interview is not higher for a bachelor. In both occupations, employers value more an applicant with a CAP, ceteris paribus. In addition, chances to get an interview are not higher if the fictifious applicant with a CAP continued his initial training by a vocational baccalauréat. However, a candidate with a vocational baccalauréat is more likely to get a job interview if he has first obtained a CAP. In occupations that we examined, recruiters seem to value more the CAP degree than the vocational baccalauréat, even though the Ministry of Education encourages actually young people to focus on the A-level.
