Exactly what it says. It means the HR for that posting has started processing the applications.

For most SBs at least, if you're going to be selected for an interview, we'll call you.

Failing that - we'll call you again.

If it still doesn't get through, we'll text you, or drop an email, or both.

If you went through [email protected], you might not get a rejection email. We might just tick off as "Unsuccessful" on [email protected]
I have a couple of applications which ticked off as Unsuccessful, but also a few which is in "Submitted" status for around 2~3weeks, I guess it's unsuccessful and the HR forgot to mark it as it is.
