If you've been at one place ten years, you've probably had supervisors or
peers who have left the company. If you've been careful to keep in touch,
you can use them. If you work for a large company, there may also be
folks who've transferred out of your division, and might be less likely to
"tell on" you, especially if you ask them not to.
