There are a range of levels of experience desired for these positions, but many are clearly marked “entry-level,” and those are the ones you should focus on. Most gigs in this field prefer or require a Bachelor’s degree, but there are exceptions.

6. Medical Assistant

Average Salary: $32,551

Working in a hospital or doctor’s office environment is a goal for some people, and becoming a medical assistant is a great way to get your foot in the door.

7. Administrative Assistant

Average Salary: $41,045

An administrative assistant generally handles all kinds of paperwork, phone calls, email correspondence, and scheduling. Sometimes, people in these roles are also asked to sit in on meetings and take notes or help prepare deliverables for major projects the company is working on. These jobs are especially advantageous for those who aren’t sure what they want to do within a larger company since admin assistants tend to have day-to-day contact with multiple departments. After getting some experience learning how the business works from the bottom up, you may be able to transition into a more specialized role.

8. Veterinary Assistant

Average Salary: $31,659

If you love animals and wouldn’t mind being around them all day, this job is a no-brainer. Though you will have to complete a certification, some animal hospitals and vet offices will allow you to learn on the job. You’ll need to be capable of lifting 40 to 50 pounds for a prolonged period of time (dogs can be heavy!), good with computers, and totally comfortable around a variety of animals. In most cases, a high school diploma is required.

Average Salary: $33,468

Although the two titles are sometimes used interchangeably, customer service reps usually work with individual consumers, and customer care specialists often work with other businesses that their company provides services to.

It’s true, there are some legal assistant jobs that require significant experience, but there are quite a few entry level positions to be found.

Average Salary: $38,678
