How do I get all of the skills?

I've always noticed that many jobs require certain skills (and knowledge of software) that I am not familiar with and have never even been exposed to. The ones I've recently noted were BPI and Six Sigma, ITIL, etc... Of course these are related to that particular job but over my time job searching, I've seen this often. I already have several skills but they are either outdated or don't really seem like a factor when applying for jobs. I am in school but I'd like to get more trained skills under my belt so that my opportunities can increase and I can have more understanding in whatever career I pursue. I'm wondering how can you get a list of popular, useful skills (both common and advanced) that employers look for in candidates? Also where can I find training on these skills? I am doing my own research but would really appreciate a direction to go in. Though, I wouldn't turn down training on physical-labor(industrial-type, hands on), I'm looking more for business related skills, project management, things dealing in paperwork--brainwork.
