Strong academic results are enough to get you through the door, as well as good interview and personal skills. Once in, keeping measurable results of your projects, working closely with the sales team to incorporate feedback, offer to take on extra responsibility and work, think STRATEGY rather than TACTICS, and of course, exhibit leadership qualities.
