New college graduates are about to join the job market. And while some new grads will soon find themselves in business formal attire, working and attending meetings and other events for their entry-level positions, others may find themselves working from home in their pajamas.

It’s true. Despite what you may have heard, remote jobs don’t necessarily require that you put in decades at the workplace before you’re rewarded with a flexible work option. According to jobs site FlexJobs, there are a number of entry-level remote (work-from-home) jobs that are a good fit for new graduates, especially millennial workers who are known for desiring flexibility and a good work-life balance.

This recent PwC survey revealed that nearly 40 percent of millennials want a work schedule that’s a combination of traditional hours and flexibility.

“While some still believe working remotely is a perk that only comes after years spent in the office, there are a huge variety of jobs that hire people to work from home from the get-go,” said Sara Sutton Fell, founder and CEO of FlexJobs. “So as the new graduating class enters a competitive job market, one way recent graduates can access a greater number of job openings is to take advantage of the telecommuting job market. As both statistical and anecdotal data confirms, millennials have different expectations of their workplace – remote work, which also benefits employers’ bottom lines, is one way to meet those demands.”

Here are 11 entry-level remote jobs identified by FlexJobs for college grads. They span fields as diverse as nutrition, computer coding and graphic design.

  • Medical field case manager
