An External Application reflects that the jobseeker was directed to a website outside of Careerbuilder to apply for the job. 

This can happen one of two ways

1. A job has a website link (URL) in either the Job Description or Requirements section.  When the jobseeker clicks on this link, CareerBuilder will read this click as
   an External Application


2. The job posting has an apply online URL that leads the jobseeker to an off-site application when they click Apply Now.


*Please note that we can track when a job seeker has clicked on an external link and when they are directed away from the site after clicking Apply Now, but we cannot confirm whether the job seeker has applied to the position once they have left CareerBuilder.
