Need help in choosing a CIS skill to make me employable.?

This question requires someone who is knowledgeable about the CIS (Computer Information Systems) industry and environment. I am a CIS major now in a state school. I will be graduating in a little over a year. It is my goal to someday become a systems analyst. I know a little bit of everything, like Visual Basic, html, C++, javascript, C#, Oracle, and php. I desperately want to get a job in CIS because I want to get my major career path started, and so I can use the information I learn on a daily and practical basis. However, I do not feel qualified in any one area to get a CIS job. So I want to work on sharpening my skills in one area. My goal is to work hard on focusing on this area, so that, in a few months, I can get an entry level CIS job. Can anyone make a recommendation, given my goals, as to what area/language/etc I should study and practice? NOTE: I don't want to hear about the new trend in the future, I want to hear about what would get me a job today if I had the skill. I am enrolled in a state university. How do I contact human resources in my school?

Take you favorite game, write a small editor for it. THis is a good way to get an entry level position for around $10-$20... More
