Write them an email to check in. Never feel uncomfortable about requesting HR / recruiters actually do their jobs.

Did China make the Alibaba guy vanish? That's ballsy even for them

There's nothing wrong with following up as there's been about a week of business days since the job posting closed. There's a good chance that they're still shortlisting/considering, but don't feel like you're jumping the gun or anything. A short email of 2-3 sentences excluding pleasantries is plenty sufficient and shouldn't trouble a HR person at all.

Does it get more Australian than this? I am not sure it does.

Hope you had a great holiday season! I'm writing to check-in on my job application for X position. I understand things slow down around the holidays, however I'm still very interested in the position and am eager to move forward in the process."

Or some dumb shit like that. Add a buzzword or two.

That seems like a really little, flimsy boat to go fishing in crocodile infested waters.

sorry, uh... value proposition, circle back, lean in, pivot, buy-in, deep dive, and I guess ping or change agent?

I have to think about these

I still hear synergy all the time. "Circle back" has become nails on a chalkboard.

"Efficiencies."

I'm all about circling back so I can touch base with my team

I deal with so much less of this bullshit than I did when I was at Shopify. The amount of meetings I went to there where nothing was actually said and people were praised for it is astounding. It's real fucking toxic in the workplace watching bootlickers say nothing, be shitty at their jobs, and get promoted because they know how to talk complete nonsense. I'm certain that being self deprecating about using this kind of nonsense language has fucked me over in previous jobs but it's just so ridiculous.

I swear I've read stories like this on numerouis occasions. I think it's quite common, especially in the Northern Territory.

the best part is that, in true Aussie fashion, he was an escaped convict.

Unless you’re on the coast from Adelaide to Brisbane or in Perth, I feel like Australians are just going full Australian 100% of the time.

Those are true assumptions. There's not much to do a few hours from the coastline.
