If you are using GA directly on the page, check outboundLinkTracker in GA Autotrack.

If you are using GTM, check Simo Ahava article on this topic here.

Yes,

 

you place events to those links -> event is recorded when user clicks the link. depending on your CMS and GA version you might have some easy options that you can use so that you do not have to tag every outgoing link on your site. Autotrack is one option too
