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.

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.
