How to break into Asset Management?

How do you get a job at a Wall Street firm in asset management?
Or at an asset management firm?

How do you become a portfolio manager?

Does an internship at a hedge fund help?

If anyone has any advice, please share, as it would help me and anyone considering a career in asset management.
