How can I obtain new skills that I can use now or in the near future?

Currently I perform payroll duties at a University. My goal is to become an HR Employment/Career Specialist. I'm currently working on my BA in Human Resource Management, but in the meantime how can I obtain new skills that I can put into use now or in the near future?
