"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.

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!
