Top Entry-Level Remote Jobs

Top Entry-Level Remote Jobs

In a typical year, about 3.7 million Americans graduate from high school, about 2 million graduate with bachelor’s degrees, and another 1.5 million or so graduate from community colleges with associate degrees or certificates. While some go on to study further, many enter the workforce.

This year, the entry-level job market looks different. Entry-level job openings that are typically popular among college graduates have declined more quickly than job openings overall since the pandemic, but entry-level opportunities for non-college graduates have recovered rapidly, largely due to growth in warehousing and delivery and resilience in construction and manufacturing.

Another change has been an explosion in interest in remote work opportunities that allow people to work safely and avoid exposure to coronavirus in the workplace or during daily commutes. If you want to find an entry-level opportunity that requires no prior experience and allows you to work from home, here are the titles with the largest numbers of postings on ZipRecruiter right now that fit the bill.
