Maintain your reference network. Christmas and Hanukkah cards, an occasional
"hey it's been too long" phone call or lunch, and the like.

And whether you can use a current colleague depends on your circumstances.
It's a risk, but, for example if you're downsizing, everybody knows who's
leaving and it's not a problem, or if your spouse is being relocated, then
you're leaving without burning any bridges. I did use current colleague
references once when the company was being re-organized into a living hell,
but I took a major chance in trusting those sources.

My 2 1/2 cents

Ok, maybe it's a dumb question, but it occurred to me while I was
watching the "Agencies" thread go by. How about "permanent"
full-time employees and employment references?
