Potential candidates want to know what it’s like to work for your organization. Be sure to highlight if you’re willing to sponsor a clearance for any of the positions.


Creating valuable content is a great way to advertise for free. This can be done through a blog or by creating videos that provide useful information to potential employees showcasing your company culture. By creating content that people find helpful (like maybe, job seeking or salary negotiation tips) businesses can establish themselves as experts in their field and build a following which can include passive candidates.

Networking is also a great way to advertise for free. By attending industry events and networking with other professionals, businesses can make valuable connections that can lead to new partners to go after proposals, more candidates interested in your company, and help you to build a positive brand in the natsec community. We recommend joining groups like the Intelligence and National Security Alliance.

Free advertising is a great way for businesses to promote themselves without breaking the bank. By creating valuable content and networking, businesses can reach new candidates and grow their brand.
