Looking for remote work? You’re in luck because, according to a recent study by CareerCloud, Washington ranks fourth among the best states for remote job seekers.
The “Best and Worst States for Remote Job Seekers” study additionally found that Washington has the third-highest levels of remote jobs currently with 65.38 per 1,000, and is expecting a 25.8 percent increase in remote jobs by 2028 — the fourth-highest growth rate in the country. Software developer is the most common type of remote job currently in the state.
Nationally, remote jobs are expected to grow 16 percent by 2028, compared with only a 4 percent growth rate for all U.S. jobs.
To conduct the study, the career content company analyzed the most recent data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics and Census Bureau on current levels of remote jobs, projected growth rates in these jobs through 2028, and broadband access in each state.
