Does having a new job affect the chances of new card approvals?

So I normally cycle 4 - 6 cards a year, due to apply for the next one around now, however I have literally just changed jobs and have only had 1.5 pay cycles in the new gig.

Only 1 week gap between old job and new one, and new job is same field. The question is whether this is likely to cause any issues in a CC application? Would it be better to wait for a few additional pay cycles?

Generally, I have no issues getting approval (even with a decent CC balance, unfortunately).
I have changed jobs recently, and now earning quite a bit more. Different industry.

When I have applied for a CC that was well within my earning capabilities - I was immediately denied. Probably because of new job+new industry.
