Hi there! Go check out the job descriptions that are posted online for your top five companies. See what they are asking for. Then go check out the LinkedIn profiles of the people working for those companies and see what they bring to the table. While you're there, work on networking!
Some of the required vs. preferred skills are going to vary by company. Same goes for expected education and program focus. Your research may be the thing that helps you garner the skills and experience to set you apart! Best of luck!
