If you’re just out of college and ready to find a job, but worried about your lack of experience, don’t fret — there are lots of entry-level jobs out there for fresh employees. Many of these jobs offer training, and a learning curve is expected as you gain experience. Better yet, many of them are also remote.
Here are the top 10 job titles with the most entry-level, remote jobs, as identified by FlexJobs.
1. Customer service representative
If you enjoy helping others, this may be a great entry-level remote job for you. The median pay is $17.75 per hour, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
2. Staff accountant
Many accountant positions can now be done remotely, and don’t typically require previous job experience. However, it’s likely you’ll need to have gotten your bachelor’s degree in accounting or a similar field to qualify.
The median pay for accountants is $77,250, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
3. Administrative assistant
An administrative assistant often plays a vital role in a company, taking on tasks that executives and managers don’t have the time for. These jobs may require familiarity with more programs than a virtual assistant, but they may pay slightly better as well.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, these jobs have a median pay of $19.08 per hour and $39,680 per year.
4. Recruiting coordinator
Recruiting coordinators help move candidates through the recruitment process, and may be responsible for posting open positions, coordinating candidate travel, scheduling interviews across departments, creating offer letters and conducting background checks, according to SmartRecruiters.com.

6. Call center representative
This job is similar to a customer service representative, but your interactions will typically be phone-based rather than via email or chat. And in a remote world, you no longer have to be in a physical call center to do this entry-level job.
The average pay is $16.75 per hour, according to Indeed.
