Familiarity with the Microsoft BI stack: Reporting Services, Analysis Services, Integration Services.
Real world experience: volunteer or create databases and reports based on personal information.
Keep up to date with the technology: Magazine subscriptions, free online training, blogs, etc.

Good communication skills (soft skills) are incredibly important in being successful as a reporting analyst.

Certifications are not necessary to begin a career as a reporting analyst.
