However, recent graduates aren't as interested in office jobs as in the past, and are instead seeking out more remote work options. Luckily, many companies are recognizing this demand and are shifting their work environments accordingly, the report found.
"This year's college graduates are entering a workplace where flexible work arrangements, like working from home, have become more acceptable and mainstream among companies in most every industry," Sara Sutton, CEO and founder of FlexJobs, said in a press release. "It is a job seeker's market, so new graduates have the luxury of being selective in their hunt for the perfect job which, for many, includes having a strong work-life balance and the option to work remotely."
The report outlined the following 10 best entry-level remote job options to show recent graduates the variety of opportunities available:
- Accounts receivable clerk
