    Entry level jobs are hard to find right now, partially because so many people are out of a job due to the pandemic, and people are in that “I’ll take anything” mindset. So, what are the easiest jobs to get with no experience? And will they pay enough to cover the necessities?

    We’ll break down what are the easiest jobs to get with no experience below, from grocery delivery to real estate and everything in between!

    26 Easy Jobs That Pay Well Without Experience

    1. Instacart

    • Average earnings: ~$15-25+/hour (read our Instacart shopper pay article for more info!)
    • Typical education required: N/A – must be 18 or older with access to a car
    • Growth outlook: 2% over 10 years

    Instacart has been growing by leaps and bounds lately – and so are earnings. We interviewed Instacart driver Chris, who has been driving for Instacart as his main job since the coronavirus decimated his earnings with Uber and Lyft.

    Now, Chris is regularly averaging $25 an hour working as an Instacart full-service shopper.

    Chris is loving the fact that he’s not putting nearly as many miles on his car and has become very familiar with local stores, increasing his ability to shop and therefore earn more money.

    Being an Instacart driver is easy. Simply complete grocery orders placed by customers through the Instacart app and deliver them to the provided address.

    You’ll have a time limit of when this is expected to be completed because customers are typically paying more for faster service and expect their deliveries within that time period. Chris recommends only shopping at supermarkets you know well – your goal is to get in and out quickly, so the better you know your market’s setup, the better!

    4. Uber

    • Average Uber driver earnings: $13-16/hr after expenses
    • Typical education required: N/A – must be 21 or older with access to a vehicle that fits their requirements
    • Growth outlook: 20% over 10 years

    Drive passengers to the destination they input into the Uber app. The number of passengers you can drive is determined by your vehicle size and type. Sometimes it can include multiple pickups/drop offs within the same request.

    While the idea of driving people around during a pandemic can be challenging, the pandemic won’t last forever – and until then, people are still requesting rides! For drivers out driving for Uber right now, they say the following:

    • Riders are more appreciative than usual
    • Most passengers are going to work, the grocery store, or picking up prescriptions
    • Drivers are busier than ever!

    How to become one: Download the Uber driver app and apply. Input your information and wait to pass the background check.

    You’ll also need an inspection done on your vehicle before driving. It’s recommended to have a rideshare endorsement added to your vehicle insurance to ensure you’re fully covered in the event of an accident while working.

    5. Lyft

    • Average earnings: $13-16/hr after expenses
    • Typical education required: N/A – must be 21 or older with access to a vehicle that fits their requirements
    • Growth outlook: 20% over 10 years

    Drive passengers to the destination they input into the Lyft app. The number of passengers you can drive is determined by your vehicle size and type. Sometimes it can include multiple pickups/drop offs within the same request.

    Many Lyft drivers have said their earnings have increased since the pandemic, so if you’re considering driving for rideshare right now, this might be a great time. In addition, Lyft is sending out personal protective equipment (PPE) to more drivers, and in some cases is even offering protective shields for drivers.

    One rideshare driver we interviewed during the pandemic said pandemic driving has been “the best ever” – during a 15 day stretch of working, he made $2,200 while driving in Baltimore, MD.

    How to become one: Download the Lyft driver app and apply. Input your information and wait to pass the background check.

    You’ll also need an inspection done on your vehicle before driving. It’s recommended to have a rideshare endorsement added to your vehicle insurance to ensure you’re fully covered in the event of an accident while working.

    6. Janitors and Cleaners

    • Average earnings: $13 an hour
    • Typical education required: High school diploma or less
    • Growth outlook: 7% in the next 10 years

    Most janitors, building cleaners and house cleaners all work indoors for the most part, although some building cleaners may have cleaning outside to do as well. The work can be physically demanding and unpleasant, but requires little to no education, experience and training is usually on the job.

    How to become a house cleaner: Luckily, in most major cities and even in smaller cities and towns, house cleaning services are always hiring. Turnover can be high among house cleaners, and many house cleaning companies look for dependable people with reliable transportation, so if you fit this, reach out to a cleaning company and see if they’ll take you on.

    Want more control over your earnings and don’t mind pitching your services to neighbors? Create ads on Facebook, announce your new business on Nextdoor and Craigslist, and set a fair price, then wait for people to contact you! You’ll be able to set your own prices, but you will have to work alone (vs. with a crew when working with a housecleaning company).

    Janitors and building cleaners will typically need to work within a company, although if you have a team of people, you can pitch yourself to local, smaller businesses.

    7. Dog Walker

    The growth outlook for dog walkers actually pertains to all animal care and service workers, which includes working in kennels, zoos, stables, animal shelters, pet stores, and more – including dog walking!

    Depending on what type of animal caring you choose to do, the job can be minimally to very challenging, both emotionally and physically. You do also risk injury when caring for animals.

    That said, if you choose to go the Rover route or create your own pet-care business, you can charge more than the going rate and choose which pets to care for. If you only want friendly cats, you can do that!

    Rover

    Managing Editor Melissa petsits and does ‘check ins’ on people’s pets on Rover, and last year just petsitting casually she made over $1,300. Yes, she gets paid to play with dogs! Her recommendations for being a high-earning Rover petsitter:

    • Always meet with the owners and pets before you pet-sit for them. This is for your safety! If the pet is too rambunctious for you or the owners give you a bad vibe, it’s better to walk early than get stuck in something unsafe.
    • Always send photos and checkins with your pets – at least 8 photos (the Rover maximum). If someone has hired you through Rover, chances are they love their pets and will love you for sending photos of them!
    • Most Rover pet owners will leave you reviews, but if they don’t, encourage them to! The more positive reviews you have, the higher price you can charge.

    How to become a petsitter or animal caretaker: The easiest job to get in this field is petsitter, and all you have to do is sign up for Rover! There is a short ‘test’ you have to take to move forward, and Rover does charge you for a background check, but the test is exceptionally easy.

    Working in zoos or aquariums may require more education, especially in big city zoos and depending on what you’re doing. You may be able to get the door through an internship, however, so pay attention to job openings in your city.

    8. Babysitter

    • Average earnings: $12 an hour
    • Typical education required: High school diploma
    • Growth outlook: 2% in the next 10 years

    While the childcare industry is only expected to grow 2% in the next ten years, if you have more specialized education in childcare or education, chances are, in the new age of pandemics, this statistic will grow. As it is, educator jobs (elementary and high school teachers) job outlook is 3-4%.

    Babysitting is the easiest job in the ‘childcare’ category to get without any experience, as many daycares will prefer some experience or study in early childhood development. However, if you have absolutely no experience but interest in babysitting, you can get started getting experience in babysitting neighborhood children, tutoring (even if that means setting up an ‘education pod’ to help children with their online learning) or remote teaching (depending on your skill level and demand for that skill).

    You can also tutor children in language instruction, music, and sports.

    How to become a babysitter: Sign up with a site like Care.com or advertise your services on a local site like Nextdoor or your local Facebook groups. Right now is a great time to advertise your services as a tutor – even if it does just mean you help keep kids on task as they do virtual learning!

    9. Freelance writer

    • Average earnings: $25-30/hr
    • Typical education required: No formal education required, but prior experience a plus
    • Growth outlook: No change

    Write books, websites, articles, manuals, brochures and more for a variety of clients. The scope of the work can vary from creative writing to journalistic to technical writing. Some clients will pay per written piece or may pay by the hour.

    Many freelance writers for The Rideshare Guy got started by pitching themselves – in our article on how at-risk drivers can make money now, writer Dash Bridges talks about how he cold-emailed Harry and asked if he needed a food delivery writer for RSG. Harry said yes, and now Dash is a regular contributor to this site!

    I asked Managing Editor Melissa Berry how editors typically hire for blogs like The Rideshare Guy, and she gave the following advice:

    “Frankly, a lot of editors are busy! Many editors need writers who are consistent, know what they’re talking about or are willing to do research, and are already themselves fairly good writers. Editors can always improve structure or style, but if your writing is all over the place and you’re unwilling to take constructive criticism, this isn’t the job for you.

    If you want to be a freelance writer, pitch an editor! Link to some of your written work (even if it’s just on your own blog), talk about how much you enjoy the website, and why you’re a good candidate. Don’t be shy – pitch!”

    How to become one: Gain experience through internships or writing workshops. Maintaining your own blog is helpful for proving your skills to potential clients.

    If you are interested in getting formal training, a degree in English, communications or journalism helps show your commitment and abilities. However, you can also take online courses like the one offered by professional blogger Holly Johnson – “Earn More Writing”.

    Keep a writing portfolio of published pieces to showcase when applying. When in doubt, just write to the editor or founder of your favorite website and pitch them some ideas of what you would want to cover on their site!

    10. Hazmat Removal Worker

    • Average earnings: $21/hr
    • Typical education required: High school diploma
    • Growth outlook: 11% over 10 years

    Remove, neutralize and/or clean up hazardous materials and substances such as asbestos, lead, mold, radioactive waste and toxins.

    How to become one: Many employers will provide on-the-job training. This training will likely include Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards. Depending on where you work, the state may require additional training and certification.

    11. Administrative Assistant

    • Average earnings: $19 per hour
    • Typical education required: High school diploma
    • Growth outlook: -7% over 10 years

    Perform clerical duties such as maintaining a filing system and answering phone calls. It may include creating meetings and appointments for individuals or groups of people within the organization.

    This type of job is expected to decline in the coming years, but there is expected to be openings as people retire. For this job, it’s crucial to stay on top of training and especially to be proficient with computer and computer technology.

    According to Office Dynamics, having a positive attitude is the best way to succeed as an administrative assistant:

    “There is no process, no to-do list, no time tracking trick that will help you until you begin your day with a positive frame of mind. That’s right: attitude is everything. Starting each day with confidence, positivity, and passion for progress often equates to a successful day. If your body and mind are in sync, you may surprise yourself with what you can accomplish in a day.”

    How to become one: Make sure your typing and basic office skills are ready to put to work. Search for openings in your area and apply. A good way to start is to take an internship or a temp job and do your best with the hopes of it turning into a permanent offer.

    12. Notary

    • Average earnings: $35,000/year
    • Typical education required: None required
    • Growth outlook: Dependent upon your area’s needs

    Witness and authenticate signatures, oaths, verify signatures and take affidavits to help prevent fraud.

    Learn how one rideshare driver turned his Plan B (notary signing agent) into his full-time job below:

     

    Nathaniell from One More Cup of Coffee looked into the notary process and while he doesn’t think it’s the perfect job for everyone, he did have the following questions to consider if you’re interested in this as a side hustle or fulltime job:

    “Are you detail oriented? Are you organized? Are you good at official paperwork and making sure that everything is done right? Do you know a lot of people in your local community? Are you well-respected and trustworthy?

    If you answered yes to these questions, then there is a very good chance that you could actually make some pretty decent money as a Notary. You may even be able to substantially increase your income with this side hustle if you work in the right kind of industry.

    If you work in real estate or at a law firm, this could be an awesome side hustle for you that could seriously enhance your own job at the same time!”

    How to become one: Complete an application and pay your state’s filing fees. You may need to take a course in order to take the state-administered exam (if applicable in your area).

    Once you receive your commission certificate from your state and file it with a Notary regulating official, you’ll be able to start notarizing legal documents.

    13. Home Health Care Aide

    • Average earnings: $24,000/year
    • Typical education required: High school diploma
    • Growth outlook: 36% over 10 years

    Help care for ill, injured or disabled individuals who are confined to their homes or living in care facilities. This can include preparing and serving meals, running errands, helping to bathe and dress them, etc.

    How to become one: Go through a training program to become certified. Each state has its own laws concerning training for certification.

    14. Podcaster

    • Average earnings: $0-40/hr
    • Typical education required: None required, many are working toward a degree in radio broadcasting
    • Growth outlook: Excellent growth opportunities

    Plan and prepare episode topics and interview questions. Invite guests to your podcast with a focus on the topic being discussed. Record and upload the podcast with a brief write-up of what the episode is about. Post on a regular basis, weekly is preferred.

    In order to start making money at this, you’ll need to sell ads and get sponsorships. You can find advertisers through the podcast network you join or the hosting service you use (see more on that below).

    The larger the audience you have, the more attractive you will look to advertisers. When you first start out, podcasting might not make you much if any money. You need to gain those advertisers to make it worth your while.

    When looking for advertisers, it’s a good idea to focus on those that somehow relate to what you’re talking about in your podcast. That way both the podcast and the advertisement are hitting the right audience.

    For inspiration, check out Harry’s podcast The Rideshare Guy Podcast!

    How to become one: Come up with an idea for a podcast, typically something you’re an expert in or have knowledge of, that would interest others.

    You can set up your own podcast using a hosting service like Buzzsprout and bring in advertisers to pay for the production. It’s best if you have audio equipment to use in order to sound more professional than if you were to simply record on your phone.

    Find a directory or multiple directories to submit your podcast to on a regular basis, making it easier for people to find your work.

    15. Home Inspector

    • Average earnings: $60,000/year
    • Typical education required: High school diploma
    • Growth outlook: 7% growth over 10 years

    Inspect a home’s HVAC, plumbing, electrical systems, roof, attic, floors, foundation and more. Look for water damage, structural damage, roof wear and tear, faulty wiring and more to determine if a home needs updates before selling/buying. From there, a written report is provided to potential buyers of that home.

    According to Side Hustle HQ, there are two main ways to jumpstart a property inspection business: the franchise route or independent route:

    “There are essentially two ways to start your property inspection business: the franchise route or the independent, DIY path. Franchises like A Buyer’s Choice Home Inspections and AmeriSpec Inspection Services cost more upfront but handle details like IT infrastructure and marketing for you.

    If you’d rather take the autonomous route, you should definitely join one or more of the aforementioned trade organizations like the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) or the  National Association of Home Inspectors (NAHI) to assist you in getting your fledgling home inspection business off of the ground.”

    How to become one: License requirements differ from state to state. Look into the American Society of Home Inspectors for education and training toward becoming a home inspector. Take and pass your state’s home inspection licensing exam.

    From there, you can work for an inspection firm or you can start your own.

    16. Flooring Installer

    • Average earnings: $17/hr
    • Typical education required: No formal education required
    • Growth outlook: 11% in 10 years

    Install floors in people’s homes and businesses. The installation process includes measuring and cutting carpets and other materials, preparing the existing floors and securing them properly.

    In addition to being a flooring installer, you may choose to go the route of Debbie Gartner, aka The Flooring Girl. As she describes her work as a flooring installer:

    “I advised my customers on the right type of flooring for their needs and budget, I helped them pick out the right colors and I optimized the design layout. I explained the ins and outs of flooring, so my customers understood what’s best for them – I enabled them to make the best decisions.”

    How to become one: Some employers will provide on-the-job training. There are also courses you can take to learn about different types of flooring and how to install each of them.

    17. Freelance Tutor

    • Average earnings: $24,000/year
    • Typical education required: High school diploma at a minimum
    • Growth outlook: 4% over 10 years

    Assist students with their homework, go over class assignments and discuss the content of those assignments, often focusing on areas of difficulty or trouble for the student. Develop training or teaching materials specialized to each student’s needs and learning habits.

    How to become one: It’s best to focus on areas of study that you already know well. Consider getting higher education in that field to better serve the students you’ll be tutoring.

    From there, you can earn tutoring certifications in different areas of study to show your knowledge of the subject matter. Joining a tutoring association can help you get your name out there as a tutor available for hire.

    18. Virtual Assistant

    • Average earnings: $15-30+ an hour depending on skills
    • Typical education required: High school diploma at a minimum (although there are no real requirements!)
    • Growth outlook: -5% in the next 10 years

    While statistics say this easy job will be in decline for the next 10 years, we’ve decided to include it due to the unpredictable nature of the current pandemic. As more people begin to realize working-from-home is a viable option, we expect businesses to hire virtual assistants more than ever.

    However, in order to distinguish yourself from the many virtual assistants that can be hired from overseas, you will want to make sure you:

    • Have a firm grasp of English and potentially some business or office experience
    • Be dependable, reliable and follow instructions easily
    • Be a good researcher

    Common VA tasks include blog management, organizing email, research, phone calls, updating websites, scheduling newsletters, scheduling meetings, live chat support and more.

    How to become a virtual assistant: The best way to become a virtual assistant is to ask around and see if anyone you know needs an assistant! The second best way is to take a course, like Kayla Sloan’s 10KVA course, to get a jumpstart on what you need to know and to be connected with business owners looking for VAs.

    19. Plumber

    • Average earnings: $21-42/hr
    • Typical education required: High school diploma
    • Growth outlook: 14% over 10 years

    Install and repair water and gas pipes for homes and businesses. This may include installing bathtubs, sinks, toilets and appliances such as washing machines.

    According to the blog Lemonade Stand, a high school diploma or GED is all you need to get started:

    “A high school diploma says that you have sufficient reading, writing, science, and math skills to get into the plumbing trade.

    Plumbing is a surprisingly technical discipline and requires that you have good knowledge of a range of mathematical concepts. You’ll have to measure pressure in pipes, gauge water and be confident working with mathematical relationships, like the ratio of pressure to volume, surface area, and flow rate.”

    How to become one: Start by taking vocational plumbing courses to learn the ins and outs of plumbing. Next, go through a plumbing apprenticeship program where you work side-by-side with a professional plumber and learn on the job.

    20. Real Estate Agent

    • Average earnings: $45,000/yr
    • Typical education required: High school diploma
    • Growth outlook: 7% over 10 years

    Help people buy and sell homes in accordance with local laws. Look for properties that suit a client’s wishes and needs. Negotiate prices between buyers and sellers to make the best outcome for all involved.

    According to McKissock Learning, it’s the opportunity to help make someone’s dreams come true that makes them want to be real estate agents:

    “Imagine showing people beautiful properties every day and helping clients find their dream homes. As a real estate professional, you get to be part of some of life’s biggest moments with your clients. You can be part of helping them find that perfect home that will be in their family memories forever. It can be exciting and motivating.”

    How to become one: Take real estate courses required by your state. Take a pre-license exam and then apply for and pass your license exam.

    In some states, you may need to be backed by a broker in order to complete your licensing. In general, this means you’ll need to work for a real estate agency.

    From there, you may also need to complete coursework within the first 6-12 months after receiving your license in order to maintain it. After that, you can continue working for the broker or start your own real estate business. You may need to take continuing education courses as required by your state.

    21. Real Estate Appraiser

    • Average earnings: $57,000/year
    • Typical education required: Associates or Bachelor’s degree in real estate
    • Growth outlook: 7% growth over 10 years

    Provide an estimate of the monetary value of land and buildings on that land before it is sold, mortgaged, taxed, insured or developed. They do this by photographing the exterior and interior of buildings and the land as well as using similar nearby properties to help determine worth.

    How to become one: Necessary training to certify or become licensed varies by state. There are also national coursework requirements that you’ll need to complete. Then, you’ll need to log experience with a qualified real estate appraiser through a mentorship. Finally, you’ll need to pass an exam proving you know your stuff as a real estate appraiser.

    22. Sales Account Representative

    • Average earnings: $46,000/year
    • Typical education required: High school diploma or Bachelor’s degree in business
    • Growth outlook: 2% over 10 years

    Interact with customers and clients to determine the products and services they need. Be a point of contact for clients, resolve issues, and ensure satisfaction after they make purchases. Meet sales targets set by employers.

    According to HubSpot, setting personal goals is key to success:

    “Multiply your customer goal by the average sale price of your company’s product to get the amount of revenue you should be aiming for.

    Make sure you set personal sales goals as well. You can always tell when a salesperson is in the top 2% of their organization. They command attention, work at their craft, provide a consistent experience, and execute. These behaviors and actions typically precede results.”

    How to become one: Research the industry you want to be a sales rep for and gain experience in that industry through internships and entry-level positions. Develop and maintain customer service, communication and sales skills.

    23. Medical Assistant

    • Average earnings: $30,000/year
    • Typical education required: Associate’s degree in medical assistance
    • Growth outlook: 23% through to 2028

    • Growth outlook: 9% over 10 years

    Create and implement treatment plans for patients with cancers treatable by radiation therapy. Track the course of treatment and make adjustments to therapy as needed, consulting with radiation oncologists for necessary adjustments.

    How to become one: Become certified in a field such as radiologic technology. From there, take a registry exam to become registered. You may also need a state license, depending on where you live.

    25. Paralegal / Legal Assistant

    • Typical education required: Bachelor’s degree in paralegal studies
    • Growth outlook: 12% over 10 years

    26. Web developer

    • Average earnings: $73,000
    • Typical education required: Associate’s degree in most cases, certification in current Web development systems and software and/or a Bachelor’s degree in computer science or a related field
    • Growth outlook: 13% over 10 years

    Develop and maintain web applications, often using a web content management system. You can find work in large corporations or in medium and small-sized companies. This can also be a freelance position, allowing you to have multiple clients without being tied to one company. Salary will vary based on the size of the scope of work and your seniority level.

    How to become one: You’re not always required to have a formal education, but certification is often needed to prove your ability to do this work. Many colleges and trade schools offer courses in web development, and then take the certifications once you’ve gained enough knowledge and experience.

    You’ll want to make a portfolio of any web development, design and/or programming work you’ve done, especially as you apply to jobs or pursue a freelance career. The growth outlook in this position is particularly strong in the mobile device and ecommerce industries.

    Online courses from Udemy can help you learn about web development, software systems and more. Employers mostly focus on the front end of applications utilizing javascript and HTML/CSS.

    What is the Easiest Job to Get?

    One of the easiest jobs to get is as an Administrative Assistant. For that job, all you need are basic office skills such as filing and answering the phone.

    With no professional experience needed to apply, it would be relatively easy for almost anyone to get a job as an Administrative Assistant.

    Another easy job to get would be a notary. You do have to go through some certifications in order to qualify, but it’s an easy job to do and you don’t need experience outside of the certification in order to qualify.

    How Can I Get a Job Fast with No Experience?

    Some of the fastest jobs to get are with rideshare companies such as Uber, Lyft, DoorDash, Postmates and Instacart.

    You don’t need prior experience and you don’t need a high school education or diploma to prove your ability to do the job. If you have a clean driving record and a clean criminal record, you’ll be able to start working within a week of applying.

    What is the Easiest IT Career?

    The easiest IT career to get is likely a web developer. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, web developers only require an Associate’s Degree, but some web development jobs only require a high school diploma up to a Bachelor’s Degree.

    Regardless, web developers can expect to make around $35 an hour – higher than many of the jobs on this list!

    If you have experience in programming or graphic design, begin to grow your portfolio and start applying for jobs. As you gain more experience, add all of it to your portfolio and in no time you will be able to command a higher salary.

    What Jobs are Easy to Get and Pay Well?

    If you want it all, an easy job and one that pays decently, I’d recommend becoming a Dental Hygienist. The average salary is around $77,000 a year and you often just need an Associate’s degree to land the job. The job outlook is promising, too – 11% in the next 10 years, much faster than average!

    A freelance writer is an easy job almost anyone can do, as well. If you have a basic knowledge of how to write and have an area of expertise, you can find freelance writing jobs for companies all over the country.

    Case in point, I live in Minnesota and write for the Rideshare Guy based in California. I don’t make full-time money at it, but that’s because this is the only freelance job I have, and I have a regular full-time job that keeps me plenty busy. But, if you snag multiple publications you’re working for, you can turn it into your full-time gig.

    Now that you’ve seen our list of the easiest jobs to get with no experience, tell us in the comments: what’s a job you’ve done that required no experience?
