Employer FAQ



Why should I use nclav?

To secure your business you need security talent. nclav delivers a curated pool of responsive candidates, so you can spend less time on sourcing and more time interviewing & hiring.


How much do you charge?

At this time, we are only looking for customer feedback that may be in the form of an e-mail, phone call and/or survey. That’s it!


How can my company get approved with nclav?

Our employer curation team manually approves all accounts, on a case by case basis. While we will consider all companies, the criteria we typically look for when approving employers includes:

  • A business model or mission statement that is exciting and relevant to our candidate pool

  • A business location within the Greater New York City area.


What sort of security practitioners are on your marketplace?

We actively bring on new grads all the way to CSOs to include. These include, but are not limited to, Reverse Engineers, Penetrations Testers, Forensic Analysts, Incident Responders, Malware Analysts, Network Security Engineers, Application Security Architects, Compliance Managers, IT Audit Managers, Technical Directors, Vulnerability Researchers, Exploit Developers, Deputy CISOs and Intrusion Analysts based in the greater New York City area.


Any advice for recruiting successfully?

Almost every candidate you contact on nclav will respond to your offer, either by accepting your interview request or declining it. Once you’re engaged with a candidate, our biggest piece of advice is: act fast. Either present a paper offer, or cancel the interview process within 2-5 business days. The longer you wait, the more companies and offers you’re going to be competing against. Never let your own personal schedule get in the ways.


Can I contact a security practitioner outside of the marketplace?

Yes. Currently, that is how you communicate with security practitioners. If you have questions about a practitioner’s background, work history, experience, etc. please reach out to them via e-mail or phone.


Help! My interview request got declined.

Not every candidate will be interested in every industry vertical. If your offer got declined for compensation, we recommend revising your offer to meet the candidate’s expectations.
