When do you start asking other CFAs if they will refer you? Is it after clearing Level 1?
How do you find references? If I dont know personally any CFA how do I find them, how will somebody be ready to give you reference without knowing you for at least few years?

Most society members in your local society are happy to reference you if you ask.

Any charterholders you know are supposed to be members of their local society, so they can give references. If you don’t know any, your society can help you out to find one. I believe there are some societies or charterholders that actually say they are willing to get to know/vouch for “orphaned” candidates. I’m not sure how that works exactly, since the recommendation form asks some questions that seem to suggest you need to know someone at least a little, but I guess there is some way to do it without breaking any ethics rules about vouching for someone you really don’t know at all.

I want to say that I took care of my references after level 2 was cleared. I simply asked some people that I worked with. If you don’t know anyone, this is a good networking opportunity. As bchadwick said, get in touch with your local society, most people are very happy to help.
