What languages do you already know? Surely if you graduated in with an IT degree you learned at least one language?
If you want an enterprise-level software engineering job, you'll need to pick Java and/or .NET (C#, C++). And practice coding like your life depends on it-- the more code you write on your own, the more you'll learn and the better prepared you'll be for the real world.
You'll also need to become proficient in a relational database-- Oracle, SQL Server, DB2, MySQL, etc.
If you want to get some idea of what is expected of you in a programmer position, go to a job board such as dice.com and enter the job title "programmer" in, then read the requirements. It'll be a bit intimidating, but you can boil down the requirements and work on them one at a time.
