Soft Skills
Two things I always tell my students:

1. Companies like to hire geeks to keep their IT infrastructure running, but no one wants to hire a geek with the personality of a door knob.

2. Be prepared to communicate orally and in written form, to convey a message that addresses your audience appropriately. By all means, geek out when talking to your tech colleagues, but also know that when your message should be fit for executive consumption, craft that message accordingly.
