Get solid in blockchain fundamentals by whatever means possible (e.g., online courses, self-directed study, on the job training), especially coding, decentralized applications, smart contracts, distributed computing, and cryptography. It doesn't hurt to have a working knowledge of financial valuation methods. Become proficient as quickly as possible on a major development platform, such as Ethereum.
If you are still in school, pursue a relevant major that can give you a broad background for solving the unique kinds of problems that blockchain professionals face regularly.
Get involved in the blockchain community, and become a known entity. You will need to accumulate as much practical experience as possible, and be constantly learning from your peers.
Develop entrepreneurship and basic digital marketing skills. At some point in your blockchain career, you will probably need to make a market for your own specialty until it becomes mainstream, and probably even after that.
Finally, always be striving to make a niche for yourself, and getting recognized as an expert as soon as possible.
