Many organizations have a policy of keeping job submission status as "open" until the final candidate accepts the job offer and commits to a start date. In some cases, the job submission status may still appear as "open" until the new hire shows up for their first day of work and is accessioned into the organization’s system of record.
A status of "open" can also mean the hiring team has already concluded their initial screening, and have chosen the candidates they want to interview or are in the process of interviewing them. It can also mean they have chosen a final candidate to whom they intend to make an offer, but the candidate has not yet accepted.
There is a saying in recruiting, "You haven’t really hired a candidate until they have both feet in the door." Don’t assume a status of "open" means recruiters aren’t doing their jobs or simply ignoring your application. They are doing their jobs, and if you are selected to be interviewed, that will become very clear.
