Hello Professors,

My name is Owen Dubiel, I’m sure you remember me. I graduated in December 2014 and I am now I am an Associate Security Analyst for Title Source, a sister company of quicken loans. we are currently looking for 4 interns that have a base background in security. now as you know it is hard to land a full time job in the security field just based on the amount of sensitive information you deal and a internship is even harder. If qualified and graduated Interns will have a chance to be brought on full time, this is the goal is to expand our security team. we are looking for the following positions.

-security engineer
-security analyst (2)
-security governance

I don’t know if you guys still have the job board, but please spread the word, this is an awesome opportunity for students just about to graduated. I am not getting anything out of this because they are being hired on as Interns, I ma simply doing this because I know how hard it is to land a internship in the security field. Feel free to associate my contact information to anyone interested and i can get them set up with an interview. Thanks again and go Eagles!

Advising, graduation, and overrides

Monday, November 17th, 2014

Hello (all IA Majors),

I wanted to take a minute and let you know of a few advising, override, and graduation changes you may not be aware of:

Advising/Graduation –
You only need to meet with me for substitutions or if you’re in the semester before graduation and you want to confirm requirements. Substitutions will not be granted without prior approval. You can email an appointment request to, please include times you could meet.
Apply for graduation in the first week of the term you think you are graduating in.
If you’ve met with me, then you have a program of study. The POS outlines the courses you need to graduate, treat it like a tick list. On the IA blog, there is a two year roll-out of classes so that you may plan ahead. Summer is not included as it is decided term by term.
If you need a copy of your POS contact Keith Jason at
You can check your general education status through U.achieve in My.emich. We’re in the process of converting all IA major programs into the same system. There is no longer an audit process done by the Records Department.
If upon adding a class you receive a pre-req error, and have the pre-req in substitution or taken at EMU, please contact Rebekah McDow to process the override. If you do not have the pre-req or wish to take the course concurrently the instructor of the higher course must approve it by sending an OK to Rebekah. Include the course IA xxx, CRN XXXX, and your Enumber in the email. If you do not have the pre-req, no override will be granted without instructor approval.
If upon adding a class you receive a class full error, only the instructor may override the course. Please note that if the course is taught in Roosevelt 13,6,16 the limit is the number of computers in the room. Please add your name to the wait list (instructions online: if enough students sign up on the wait list we may add another section.

Long term, once Records and Registration gets u.achieve up for majors this will be a tool that you can review your POS at any time. Hope your Fall term is going well.
