Does this mean that freelancer is already hired and I shouldn`t waste my connects in such case?
Yes, the number next to "Hires" refers to the number of freelancers the client has hired for the job. Sometimes clients hire more than one freelancer for a job though. So if you believe you qualify for the job and are interested in it, you can go ahead and apply.
