Another thing that will help getting your foot in the door is showing curiosity and a clear eagerness to learn.

Anecdotal evidence ahoy: I got my current job because when the person asked me if I knew X, and my response was along the lines of “no, where should I start to pick that up?” (I figured I was already screwed =), that’s at least a part of what landed me the job. I’m also good at what I do, etc, but it was the clear willigness to learn that helped me the most.
