> What is missing from a typical undergraduate program, or not sufficiently emphasized, that a person needs to know for successful employment in a software development position?

To answer your question literally, I would say nothing. I don't necessarily think you need to be the best at TDD or GIT or whatever to be successful in an entry-level position. A willingness to learn, some enthusiasm, and a good team fit are (at least in my experience) huge factors in being successful in an entry-level role.

However, to better answer the question from an educator's perspective: I think dealing with _mess_ is under emphasized. A lot, and I mean **a lot** of software development is horrendously messy. Seriously. I remember with vivid clarity the look of disgust on an intern's face when I told him there are about 60,000 files in the solution he would be working on (so sorry John). To me a good way to get that experience is as others have said: open source. (Bonus cool-guy points if you added a feature you needed to a tool you found lacking.) I think it would be great to see this (dealing with huge messy projects) added to more CS degrees. There is an art to it.
