Tim Dugger, President and owner of Career Cafe’, was born in Chicago, IL and grew up in Highland, Indiana. In 1977 he graduated from Indiana University School of Business with a degree in Marketing/Advertising and a minor in Industrial Psychology. Following four years at Firestone’s Industrial Products Division in Noblesville, Indiana and The Premier Rubber Manufacturing Co. in Dayton, OH, Tim began his recruiting career.
In 1981, he joined Management Recruiters of Indianapolis recruiting exclusively for the Rubber and Plastics Industries in the areas of Technical, Manufacturing, and Sales Management.
In May of 1999, SearchPro Group purchased Pyramids Personnel, a then 23 year old Administrative and Managed Care recruiting firm. Renamed The Pyramids Group, the company provided Executive, Middle Management, Technical and Medical professionals to the Accounting, IT, Manufacturing, Medical and Legal markets.
After 20 years in recruiting and many requests from individuals seeking career guidance, Tim created Career Transition Strategies in 2000 and Career Cafe’ in 2009. Today Career Cafe’ provides fee-based Career Coaching, Testing, Resume and Outplacement Services to professionals, organizations and students.
When he’s not helping others, Tim enjoys spending time with his two daughters, grandson and granddaughter. His passions include boating, motorcycles, racquetball, cycling, reading, attending Jimmy Buffett concerts and playing guitar and piano badly.
