Donna, this means that the job is still open for hiring. This may mean that the client is planning on hiring more than one applicants for the job. If you are running short on applications and want to apply to another job, then withdraw the application, otherwise, the quota refreshes on an ongoing basis, you get new bids/applications against the ones that are a week old so withdrawing it doesn't make much sense. The client may very well come back to hire you later.
