Myles has always had a knack for numbers, so he thought he might become a financial advisor or a stockbroker. Then he met someone who told him about the many career opportunities offered by HCA Healthcare.
“You can use the skills that you’re really good at — money, numbers and statistics — in other fields, too,” he says. “It opened my mind, and that’s when HCA Healthcare kind of walked into my life. It’s been here ever since.”
During his junior year at Fisk University, Myles received an internship through the HCA Healthcare Scholars Program. The internship was key in his decision to pursue a career with HCA Healthcare after graduation.
“I always tell people that what I love so much about HCA Healthcare, in general, is that when you come here for an internship, they don’t treat you the way interns typically get treated. In my other internships, I was basically an errand person or a paper pusher,” Myles recalls. “I made sure everybody had their coffee, or I delivered a paper from this place to the next. With HCA Healthcare, they gave me applicable, on-the-job training that actually had value to the enterprise and gave me a sense of responsibility.
That was crucial to me because it gave me the opportunity to actually get real experience that was pivotal to getting me prepared for graduation,” says Myles.
His internship was so successful that Myles continued working for HCA Healthcare through his college graduation. He juggled his job with academics, as well as managing clubs, campus organizations and other extracurricular projects.
Myles is now an associate project manager in Information Protection and Security.
“I work on cybersecurity and identity access projects,” says Myles. “These help protect and provision access to users in our facilities and outside of our enterprise.”
