What Is A No-Experience-Remote-Job ?
A remote jobs that doesn’t require experience is one where…
…you don’t have any work experience in the job,
…you may not have any skills specific to the job,
…the job is great for beginners,
…a degree isn’t always necessary,
…the job is usually easy to get,
…you are paid quickly – often weekly or per project
And here’s something else worth considering: remote jobs that don’t require experience are not the same as entry-level jobs. No experience means no experience and often are low paying. Entry level means you have some knowledge in the job and you’re starting out at the bottom.
Here are some awesome remote jobs that don’t require experience and offer decent pay:

#1 Social Content Jobs
A specialized branch of Marketing, social content jobs are a booming career these days. The main responsibility you’ll have is monitoring the online channels of companies of all sizes.
For no-experience social content jobs, check out ICUC, 99 Dollar Social, The Social Element and Mod Squad. They are three well-known companies with entry level remote jobs cleaning up their client’s online presence and acting as brand advocates.
The companies I just mentioned have legitimate remote jobs that pay weekly, but...the pay is only $12.00 and hour.
Not quite the average pay of $43,000.00 a year to monitor social content.
So this is what you can do:
After you’ve worked for one of the entry level companies I mentioned, check out the marketing jobs with Toptal, Aha!, Chargify, and Zapier. These “remote first” companies often have marketing jobs that cover everything that’ll get the company growing.
#2 SPECIALIZED Graphic Designer / Image Creator
Forget about being a catch-all Graphic Designer…what you really want to do is be a SPECIALIZED Graphic Designer. In other words, specialize in a specif design niche and reach those customers Maybe it’s creating Pinterest Pins or infographics or feature images for blogs.
There’s a lot of need for Specialized Image Creators, especially among bloggers, because people scan blog posts. In other words, the more eye-catching images a blog post has, the longer people stay and read, which is why bloggers pay for this kind of work.
To get started as a specialized graphic designer, you just need to know a few things:
- Knowledge of photo editing programs like Canva (free), PIC Monkey (free), Photoshop.

You can find work with companies like Shutterstock but your best bet is to offer your Specialized Graphic Design / Image Creation service as a freelancer on Fiverr and Upwork. You’ll be able to charge your own rates and have the flexibility you want.
And, speaking from experience, a lot of small business owners hire Image Creators through these platforms.
What you earn is whatever you charge. Let’s take a look at a few examples:
