I REMEMBER ASKING ONE OF MY PROGRAMMING PROF'S THE SAME QUESTION. THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER IS, GET FAMILIAR WITH AS MANY AS YOU CAN, SINCE YOU MAY NOT KNOW IN ADVANCE IF YOU'LL NEED THAT PARTICULAR LANGUAGE, AND THE LANGUAGE THAT YOU USE IS DETERMINED BY WHAT YOU ARE TRYING TO DO. HOWEVER THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT ALL COMPUTER LANGUAGES ARE STRUCTURALLY THE SAME, AND ONCE YOU UNDERSTAND THE STRUCTURES OF PROGRAMMING IT IS FAIRLY EASY TO LEARN A NEW LANGUAGE. THE BASIC DIFFERENCE BEING ONLY SYNTAX AND SEMANTICS . I HOPE THAT HELPS A BIT....

I have a close friend that works with a MAJOR production company. He has been encouraging me to self-teach DaVinci Resolve. It's normally used for color correction, but its beginning to be used for basic editing too. Apart from that Photoshop and AfterEffects are used a lot too.

Hello! Those are up and coming where I work (we mainly use a lesser known program), so knowing those has great value. I would suggest After Effects as well as audio programs such as Audition or Pro tools. Familiarity with Media Encoder couldn’t hurt either. Basically the whole Adobe suite is a great foundation.

First off, great work staying on this! I would say the third program you'll want to add is Final Cut. I find folks use Premiere most often in the business (as we use here at Coca-Cola Studios) but there's still a fair amount that use Final Cut. There is a large debate over version 7 vs 10 but it seems they have gotten the major bugs out of 10, so I would learn that version!
