Your application is broken.

Apologies for not seeing your post earlier. Which part of the application did not work for you? I just tried the following steps and didn't encounter an issue:

1) Go to the linked FSU Jobs website and search for ID 56372
2) The search should return a job listing result with a 'View' button on the right side
3) Clicking 'view' should take you to the listing itself, with an 'apply' button in the top right corner
4) Assuming you don't already have an applicant account you'll be asked to make one
5) This should take you to the application page itself.

Which step was broken for you?

The application page is simply blank. No fields to enter anything. Firefox on Linux.

Thanks for the details, I've passed them along to our web team to see if they can re-create and then fix the issue.
