I currently work in an internship position at a relatively small(~15 employees) software development company. Its not an official internship and there are no end-dates or anything like that. Since I still have another year or two left of college I figured I should probably try and get another internship(explore a different area of software development, and perhaps try working in a more corporate setting). My boss is close friends with some fairly high level employees at a very large programming consultation company, and I would love to get in touch with them for my next internship.
Would it be inappropriate to ask my boss for help getting in touch with someone from this company?
a little bit more information about our working relationship for context
He has expressed before that he hopes that all of the (4) interns that he hired would stay on until we graduate to start working full time although graduation is a ways away and I think I don't really think that I'd like to stay here as a career
He has made it clear before that he thinks I do very good work for the company, putting me in charge of several very important projects
I'm starting my Junior year of college and this is my first internship
