Employers in all job industries seek candidates with a well-balanced set of relevant skills. There are foundational skills that can be used in any industry, and skills that are in demand for any role you may be seeking. 

Internships and part-time jobs are great ways to build skills, but aren’t the only way. The skills you’ll need can be built through any experience where you focus on a task to get something done. This means that you’re building skills right now through your classes or other activities you do in your free time.
