Advice on keeping connected no matter where you are in your career from Lifehacker.
Just Starting Out: When you’re looking for your first job, or first transition to a new job, reach out to your family and alumni. Both are groups that you already have a connection with, which helps when you haven’t been working long enough to build a strong network.
Three to Five Years In: Look to a former manager for a mentor or solid referral as you make the jump up the career ladder to other opportunities. If you’re interested in taking on a junior-management role, a recruiter can help you find the right position.
Mid-Career: Former coworkers who are now at other companies are a strong source of referrals when you want to move jobs, or even switch careers.
Senior Level: If you want to find open senior level roles, keep in touch with people you’ve managed before and been a great boss to. They’re the ones who can vouch for you and let you know when senior positions open up at their companies.

In a list of the worst states for careless and reckless driving behavior. Number one, or the worst, is Montana. The best is Virginia, of all places. From the Auto Insurance Center.
2nd Annual Study of America's Fatal Crash Causes
Most of us probably consider ourselves to be safe drivers. Unfortunately, not everyone is. Some individuals can be reckless and downright dangerous on the road, putting everyone around them at risk. This type of driving behavior has only increased with the use of technology, which has led to higher rates of distracted drivers on the road.
Regarding careless and reckless driving behavior, Montana had the greatest number of fatalities due to this type of driving – 108 fatalities per 100,000 residents. A common behavior cited in crash deaths in Montana was a lack of seat belt use, in addition to speeding and alcohol consumption. The next state to have the highest fatalities due to careless and reckless driving was Arkansas (86 fatalities).
The states with the least number of deaths caused by dangerous driving were Virginia (1.42 fatalities), New York (2.01 fatalities), Indiana (2.14 fatalities) and California (2.84 fatalities).
