Virtual Coffee Newsletter, April 2021

What we're up to in April: celebrating a year of growth, friends, and Virtual Coffee πŸ’

Hey friends!

We made it a year πŸŽ‰ I never would've guessed that a tweet inviting people to talk about the job search would turn into a year of 100+ Virtual Coffees, 2 rounds of Lightning Talks, a Hacktoberfest event, brownbags, bookclubs, member-formed groups, a podcast, this newsletter, an amazing community, and so much more.

I didn't know if anyone would want to hang out for one virtual coffee, let alone more than a hundred.

Thank you all for showing up. Thank you for being a wonderfully supportive community. I'm amazed by everyone here, and I'm so excited for what we have planned and to see what the next year of Virtual Coffee will bring πŸ’–

Hope to see you soon,

April Happenings:

πŸ’‘Monthly Challenge: Month of Kindness!

It's our VC-anniversary so we wanted to spend a month focusing on the most important aspect of Virtual Coffee: the kindness and gratitude we show each other on a daily basis. This month, let's let the people who've made a positive impact in our lives know it and support each other in whatever ways we can.

I did some gratitude journaling this morning, and I wanted to say how grateful I am that I'm a part of the VC community. It's so nice to see friendly faces every week and to talk about interesting topics!"


This group has been great for keeping my spirits up when I'm feeling down. Thanks to all of you for the well wish and encouragement when I've needed it."
