I'm currently looking for a new job. Basically the only thing I am unhappy about at my current job is the location. It's in the busiest part of the city that I live in (and I live in a famously busy city), and I want to find an area that's not quite so crazy. Other than that I'm looking to find a position similar to what I do now (basically a business intelligence analyst).
I've stuck it out for two years here, and I still don't like it any more than I did my first month, so I think this is the right decision.
How would it be perceived by recruiters/HR if I am honest about the reason I'm looking for a new job?
One the one hand, it could say, "This applicant is a good fit for this type of position, since they currently have the position and enjoy the work."
On the other hand, it could come across as sort of whiney, and not very impressive when I could be otherwise discussing my long term career goals.
Maybe this the sort of thing I can mention in an interview but should leave off the cover letter?
