➡️ About The Guest
Harpaul Sambhi is an entrepreneur and current angel investor. He is the founder and CEO of Magical. He bootstrapped his first business, Careerify, serving over 250,000 users globally at customers such as Microsoft, Deloitte, Unilever, Blizzard Activision, and SpaceX. Careerify achieved profitability within its 2nd year of business and was acquired by LinkedIn in 2015, marking LinkedIn's first acquisition outside of the United States. Harpaul joined LinkedIn and rebuilt Careerify and oversaw LinkedIn's HCM initiative, and led product development for LinkedIn's partner ecosystem in the recruitment space. After LinkedIn was acquired by Microsoft, Harpaul joined Microsoft's Dynamics product team to build a best-in-class HR technology suite.
During his professional career, Harpaul has been fortunate to write a book, Social_HR, published by Carswell/Thomson-Reuters, analyzing the impact of social media on the HR Industry. This led to some very fortunate speaking opportunities across North America and Europe and becoming a lecturer at the Kellogg-Schulich School of Business.
