Others know better than I, but here are a few thoughts.First, be aware that Wall Street hires bright people usually with computer skills and statistics/data correlation skills to spot profitable relationships between data groups and then exploit them with high speed on line trading programs. These are usually called quants. They are the geeks of Wall Street.For general technologies, you are usually talking about a new technology area where several players are scrapping leadership or areas like pharmaceuticals where a new discovery opens up an attractive area with multiple players.I would say good communications skills, the ability to communicate with busy, non-technical money managers is important. To fit in with the group. Well dressed. Good manners. Ivy league education are all plusses. (Probably not essential but it is a big plus.)Knowledge of the industry. Multiple contacts. Ability to glean what is happening inside from multiple sources. Personality. Ability to work a crowd helps.
