Certain cities are emerging as remote work hotspots faster than others. Bend, Oregon topped LinkedIn's list for the small U.S. cities where remote work is the most popular; of all the job applications that people from Bend are submitting on LinkedIn, 41.8% are for remote jobs.
These small cities have the highest proportion of remote work applications:
"We're seeing booming interest across industries in remote work, a lot of people want that flexibility as the pandemic continues, and companies are going to go where the workers are," George Anders, a senior editor at LinkedIn, tells CNBC Make It . "We've also discovered that the kind of tools we're using for remote work, like Zoom and Slack, make more remote jobs possible, so remote work has ended up being sustainable and productive."
Anders notes that many tech employees from San Francisco and Seattle flock to nearby Bend for its beautiful mountain range and abundance of co-working spaces.
"Bend has had a long culture of being a place where people will work from home, it's become a magnet for remote employees," Anders says. "Especially during the pandemic, if you're in a big, crowded city, you need to mask up more often and follow stricter guidelines, but out in the countryside, there's less people to worry about and more outdoor activities to do, so you can enjoy a better work-life balance.
Cape Coral, Florida dominated the larger cities list, with 33.1% of residents' LinkedIn job applications going to remote jobs.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
