I got a call from Google recruiter regarding a opening and she mentioned that she will start the process soon and sent me a link to apply . I applie dto the link she sent and it's been 10 days but I haven't got any follow-up email. Any idea of this is normal.

A cover letter is never necessary but usually suggested

This advice is not applicable at Google. A cover letter is explicitly not required unless you are highlighting a skill that is not obvious in your resume.

I’ve been performing above peers in my current group. How should I navigate this situation?

I'm a Microsoft Dynamics and C# Developer at a Big 4 consulting firm. But... working with Dynamics for the last 5 or 6 years is starting to wear on me.

Maybe this is more of a rant or I'm letting off steam, but has anybody on here ever essentially gone from a specialized type of roll to more general role?

Much of the concept is the same, which I had a key role in. Due to Covid it was packaged differently, but still the same messaging. I’m so angry. but not sure I have the right. 😖

Offer is for BA level if that matters.
