Summer Internship Return Offer Training (SIROT)
Choose Your Preferred Engagement Model:
Prepare for Your Internship in 1 Week
The Summer Internship Return Offer Training (SIROT) program is a hands-on training program led by former Goldman Sachs Investment Banking Analysts and PE Associates teaching you how to be a star intern. We designed this virtual training program for incoming Investment Banking Summer Analysts and Summer Associates. Undergraduate buyside interns can also participate in this program. SIROT has one objective: to help you succeed in the summer internship and win the return offer. Whereas interview preparation is about how to talk the talk, internship training is about how to walk the walk. During this training program, you’ll learn to perform tasks that you’ll perform during the summer internship, which are completely different from the skillset required to succeed in interviews.
Incoming Summer Analysts & Summer Associates should sign up for this program between when they receive the internship offer and the last week of May (before internship starts in June). The program is customized to client’s schedule. It consists of 10-15 Hours (depending on client’s choice) and we can complete the training in as short as 1 week. However, spreading the training across 2-3 weeks would be ideal.
What to Expect: We offer two tracks for this program: 10-Hour and 15-Hour. Both tracks involve extensive hands-on exercises. The 15-Hour track will include more exercises and cover more grounds than the 10-Hour track. During checkout, you’ll be asked to provide your preferences for when you’d like to receive the training and we’ll work with you to find times that work best for you. There will be extensive homework, so please budget several hours for it following each session.
Before the Program: Please do three things: (1) make sure your Skype, microphone (don’t need camera) and Internet are working; (2) familiarize with Excel & PowerPoint; and (3) review The Core Technicals Guide on our website. We will spend most of our time learning how to “do things” at work rather than going over financial concepts.
Two Formats: 1-on-1 vs. Small Class
1-on-1 Format: Our 1-on-1 training format provides a learning setting where you can learn at your own pace, based on your own schedule, tailored specifically to your personal needs. Whereas you might be one of thirty students (potentially hundreds) at a typical college class, you’ll have the undivided attention of the instructor here at 10X. You can also tell us any special topics that you’d like to focus on and we can personalize the training to meet your specific needs.
Small Class Format: If you have friends who are also interested in training for their upcoming internships, you can form a group of 2-4 people and sign up for our Small Class format. This format comes with reduced pricing per student. Our firm has a policy limiting maximum instructor-to-student ratio of 1:4 in order to keep the experience highly personalized for everyone. Each student can ask questions freely and you’ll learn from fellow students’ participation as well.
We conduct our training sessions via phone calls and digital communications (i.e. Skype, WhatsApp, etc). Each coaching session will be at least 1 hour in length. Time spent online during calls and offline reviewing materials are both tracked.
Please plan to use all coaching sessions within 180 days of purchase.
We understand recruiting can be unpredictable and we’ll do our best to accommodate last-minute requests. But advanced notice will be greatly appreciated! If you have to reschedule, let us know at least 1 hour in advance. Please avoid lateness and last-minute cancellations.

Frequently Asked Questions
Who will I be working with?
You’ll be working with a member of 10X’s Investment Banking Practice, who likely completed Investment Banking Analyst / Associate program at Goldman Sachs or another top investment bank and then Private Equity Associate program at a top fund.
Are the 10X coaches current working professionals in the industry?
Most of our coaches are working professionals and provide coaching services on the side during their free time. In fact, we encourage our coaches to work full-time in the industry. This gives us a competitive edge because we can stay up-to-date on the latest industry trends and best practices that we can share with our clients. Only our operations team work at 10X on a full-time basis.
How will the training sessions be delivered?
Most of our training sessions are delivered through either phone or digital communications (i.e. Skype, WhatsApp, FaceTime, Google Hangouts, etc). We do not accommodate in-person training sessions, unless given special circumstances.
My internship is in 1 week. Can you help?
We suggest you make the purchase as soon as possible. If we’re unable to accommodate the request, we’ll refund your money. While we have the capability to accommodate last-minute requests, we ask that you please be considerate of our time and try to give us as much advance notice as possible. The more time we have before your internship, the more time you have to absorb everything we’ll teach you.
Can you guarantee that I will get the return offer?
We cannot guarantee that you will get the return offer. The engagement is purely for educational purposes. Our engagement is to train you and teach you how to do the different tasks you’ll encounter at work. We have a very strict business ethics standards and conflict of interest policy and do not participate in guaranteed arrangements of any kind.
Why should I engage 10X to help my career?
There are so many reasons, but we’ll just highlight two. First, we’re the best. We are a small team, but we’re the best at what we do. Our team is not only from Wall Street’s top firms and top-ranked within these firms (top performing analyst, promoted to associate / vice president, etc.), but we also have the most experience in terms of helping clients succeed with their careers. Second, it’ll have one of the best Return on Investments on an expenditure you can make. For reference, our fee represents <1% of what you’ll make in a single year. Hiring us is a small investment relative to the impact we can make on your career.
Does the coaching packages include any of 10X’s other products (i.e. Guides, online course, etc)?
Our coaching packages only include our time and does not include other products that we sell on our online store. They would have to be purchased separately. For Comprehensive Package clients, you will receive other proprietary materials, just not the items being sold on our platform.
