Speaking of which, the company's search for a possible spot in Virginia is apparently on a quieter level than in North Carolina. The new campus will hold call center workers at first. The company is looking at plots of land in Northern Virginia and in North Carolina's Research Triangle Park (RTP).

Northern Virginia may also be a candidate, according to the Washington Post.

"While we talk to many companies and their executive teams about the advantages North Carolina can offer their businesses, we do not comment on the details of these discussions until a site selection decision has been publicly released", wrote David Rhoades, communications director of the N.C. Department of Commerce, in an email to The Chronicle Wednesday.

Citing various sources in the legal, real estate, and state government sectors, The Triangle Business Journal reported on Wednesday that the cities of Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill - an area referred to also as Triangle Research Park - are now at the top of Apple's short list of potential locations for its upcoming campus development.

Apple CEO Tim Cook reportedly met with NC Governor Roy Cooper when the former was in Durham to give a commencement address at Duke University. Additionally, the region is home to several universities including Duke, The University of North Carolina and North Carolina State.

As Fortune notes, Apple's method for trying to find a location for its second campus is markedly different from Amazon's approach to finding the next spot for another headquarters. "No one is going to locate somewhere they expect the employees to fall out of an airplane".

But it isn't the only tech sector behemoth looking for a new location. This increase in Apple's employee headcount would go a long way towards fulfilling the company's goal of investing $30 billion in the USA and creating upwards of 20,000 new jobs over the next five years.
