1. Install Ubuntu (on a separate HDD - unplug the others HDDs physically) and play with it - install software, configure it etc. There are a lot of howtos in the net.
2. After you started to feel comfortable with Ubuntu, remove it and install Gentoo or Slackware - play with compiling software from source, finding dependencies, compiling and patching your own customized kernel.
3. Switch back to Debian (Ubuntu is a Debian derivative) and stay with it :)

That's good advice from VladSun (as always!). I will only add a few things more. Jobs that require Linux knowledge are very likely to be server environments, so I would concentrate on command line operations, not GUI (Windows-like) operations. Learn the commands used at the command line, especially those to configure Linux servers like Apache, MySQL, Postfix, etc. Learn how to read system logs. Learn the file systems and permissions. Those are a few of the things you would be expected to know on a job.
