About | CHANGE STATE
We started Change State because we saw an opportunity to merge our unique skill sets into a compelling new vision of a recruitment marketing agency. Graham’s in-depth knowledge of HR technology combines seamlessly with Marty’s extensive experience helping brands hone their messages and targeting. This enables us to elevate the recruitment marketing agency from a “necessary evil” to a true partner for businesses that are serious about making changes to their talent acquisition processes.
