Write well. There is no industry or role that wouldn’t benefit from a deluge of better writers.
Writers communicate thoughts coherently. They figure out what to say, and how to say it. And the great ones do it without needless words.
Want to learn how to write well? Write a lot. Rewrite. Read. And read books on writing. Here are some books that have helped me.
