While it wouldn't hurt to know them all equally well, it certainly isn't necessary. Since you're young, though, building up as much experience as you can get with each is probably going to pay off in the long run. In this business (and I've been in it 25 years), employment is almost never a long-term thing. You'll find yourself working for several firms over the course of your career, and each will have its own preferences, as far as software goes. So, the broader your experience, the more adaptable you'll be. Stick with one application and you're likely to find yourself out of a job and with no marketable skills if that application isn't the one everyone is using currently. All three are good products, but Autocad is undisputed leader in the field, if for no other reason than the fact that it's what everyone uses.
