Calling all AskMefites who work for a strategic communications firm or in corporate communications: how did you get your gig?

Just looking for personal accounts of how people broke into the field, and/or any advice you may have for someone who's trying to.
Bonus Qs: a) any listings of firms or trade magazines you'd recommend for someone looking to get into this field? and b) are there any special skills -- other than the obvious good communication skills -- that are helpful in this sort of work? (Knowledge of specific computer programs, etc.?) Thanks!
