I've been trying to get remote jobs but I graduated college about a year and a half ago. I find a lot that I'm getting auto rejected from remote jobs (startups, bigger companies, etc...).

Does anyone have experience/advice with a similar situation?

    You shouldn’t be trying to get remote job with 2 yoe. Find a company you like, develop skill set and reputation and then go remote for same employer after ~3 years. It’s much easier to start onsite and eventually go remote than be hired remotely

      I know some companies are more open to remote than others

      Even if companies are open to it, it might be a good idea to be on-site at the start of your career just for the learning opportunities. I've interviewed a lot of people, and the ones who consistently don't meet our expectations at the ones we works alone/in a team of two, or remotely, early in their careers.

    Most remote jobs are looking for people with 5+ YoE.

    I think remote for junior is a bad idea. You need to spend some time in any company where more senior Devs can teach you. It is more for your skills rather than just a job.
