Oglevee wins university Career Services Award

As a member of the finance faculty, Dan Oglevee’s responsibilities include teaching graduate, undergraduate and executive education courses, coaching case competition teams, consulting Fisher’s research centers and advising students and student organizations.

On May 4 at the Ohio State Faculty Club, Oglevee received a university honor for a role he plays that is not even in his job description, the 2010 University Career Services Award.

“It is an unbelievable bonus to our work when a faculty member fully engages in helping students secure internships and post-graduate employment,” said Jeffrey Rice, executive director of Fisher’s Office of Career Management at the award ceremony.  “And, when that faculty member actually succeeds in job markets that are especially challenging—it is a home run.  Fisher College of Business is blessed with such a faculty member in Dan Oglevee.”

The University Career Services Committee (UCSC) presents the annual award to an individual in the university community—who does not work in a career services job—who makes a significant contribution to the career development of students.
“This award is a recognition of Dan’s penchant to do more and to give back,” Rice said.

Oglevee, a former Wall Street banker, entrepreneur and venture capitalist,  partnered with the Office of Career Management in developing a go to market strategy, Rice said.  “He opened his contact list and familiarity with Wall Street to me and others, and joined me in knocking on doors in midtown New York and on Wall Street.”

Rice credited Oglevee for providing assistance to 60 Fisher students who eventually secured positions at over 20 financial institutions in New York City over the last eight years.
