Will tech roles continue to be attractive if tech stock prices stop rising at above market rates?

Yes. Tech roles often pay the same or more now (before expected equity appreciation) than consulting or other roles, while having better WLB. They'll still be popular, but the relative popularity of specific firms will shift.


Which will happen at some point to a lot of large tech companies (I.e Microsoft a decade ago)


Already less attractive since most companies grant a fixed dollar value instead of number of units now.

Thats kind of incorrect- its a dollar value but it depends on the vesting schedule. For some, all of it begins to vest at 1 yr, and then released over time, so the value at the point where released to you can be higher.

Depends on the tech role and product sector. Commodity tech roles ain't gonna be as highly paid but if you're in a hard-to-fill niche, $$$ is still gonna stack.

Currently interviewing for a GC role at a crypto-focused hedge fund. They’re mostly focused on VC deal experience, but would prefer someone with some compliance experience. My background is in M&A and Capital Markets, so I have little-to-no crypto-fund compliance experience. I’d like to show them I’m serious about learning though. Anyone know of a good way for me to get some quick, relevant experience? Maybe a course, certificate program or other training I could enroll in to bolster my resume
