Down in a job description page, you can see the activity on that specific job. The question is: when it says for instance "Hires: 1", it means that someone has already been hired to do that job, right? However, the post is still open. To me, it does not seem worth applying if someone is already working on the project, or am I misunderstanding something?
Thanks in advance
Clients don't usually close job posts even when they have found the help they need.
However - they can still hire more. The first freelancer might not work out, for example, or maybe another applicant will impress them enough to take them on.
