I graduated in June 2016 and started working in October 2016 for a big consultancy firm. However, after my short experience with my current employer, I feel terribly unhappy and bored since I almost did not learn anything at all. I am constantly looking at new vacancies and I have found some that really interest me (no consultancy for me anymore).
However, I do not really know how to properly address this in my cover letter? On one hand, I really want to express in some way that I am looking for something more challenging and that my current employer does not give me the possibility. On the other hand, I certainly do not want to break down my current employer since it can give a wrong impression.
Furthermore, suppose that I am invited to an interview, how to address this? They will certainly ask me about my reason to leave etc. and I want to express that I tried very hard to learn but that my former employer did not give me the chance. Should I be truly honest here? I don't want they to think that I did not try hard enough or that I am a "job hopper". I just want to do something that I like and work for an employer that gives me the chance to improve and develop myself.
All hints are welcome! Thanks!
