I'm currently working on a product I don't care at all for with no prospects of rotating anytime soon. The lack of interest in the work I do plus work load are affecting my work performance and I've had several discussions with leadership about needing to improve or else. I'm planning on getting ASA by the end of the year, would I have a better shot with landing a new job if I wait until the designation? Is it possible to enjoy working in this field on some products but not others? Does any of my current work situation carry over to other companies? Thanks for any advice you all have!

If you’re getting performance discussions I don’t think switching companies is going to magically solve your problems. I think it’s time to evaluate why you don’t care about your work and if a bigger change is needed.

Also no you don’t need to wait to have your ASA to start applying to jobs.

moving in general is probably easiest at the 2-5 year experience range. expected salary? If you're not trying to make much over 100k base it shouldn't be a problem pre-ASA.

just make sure you practice reasons for the move (good things about the new company, not bad things about your current one) and how your experience fits what they're looking for.

why is it that you don't care for the product? unless you're planning on switching industries, i find it hard to believe someone can be completely disengaged with a product because other products within the same industry would typically have some similarities. also, keep in mind that this perceived indifference toward your work may come across in interviews.

how many YOE do you have? if you're having discussions about work performance on top of your lack of interest, you're probably better off moving sooner than later. however, based on your post, i get the impression that there are larger underlying issues that need to get resolved before moving companies.

Was in a similar situation as you a few years back, pre asa, only needed an exam and modules. Made the jump, got a big pay raise, and then got exam raise and asa raise within the next year. If I waited until asa to switch, would probably not have seen as big of a pay increase by switching
