I'm currently studying abroad in Hong Kong and have luckily secured an 8 week full time internship at a fairly prestigious but slightly small PE advisory firm that specializes in fundraising. They are between 50-100 employees worldwide and with a pretty relevant NY office.
I am yet to secure a summer internship and I want to ask if they can refer me to someone in their NY office. However, I think it might be too early to ask. My interview only consisted of a phone interview with a VP and then with a director that was very thorough and lasted about 2 hours. I have not met them in person. Is it too early to ask for a referral? Will I be overstepping my boundary given that I have never met them?
It's already March 7th and I'm starting to become very worried about the summer, especially because I'm in Hong Kong until late May.
