SEO impact on RedirectView to external link

I am editing a Django 1.1 basic static website’s with nothing in the file.
Does this effect SEO in anyway ? Anything bad about redirecting this way ?

from django.views.generic.base import RedirectView
urlpatterns = (
url(r'^careers/$', RedirectView.as_view(url='')),    

Since this is unrelated to Django, I think you’ll be better served searching for SEO and Redirects. Here’s one result. In it, it discusses various redirects via the status code. The RedirectView allows you to return a 301 or 302 via the permanent property. You could subclass that view and adjust it so that it’ll use the status code you find is most appropriate too.
