Honestly if you feel you've mastered those things, I would go ahead and apply right now. Companies have wish lists, but they're not expecting you to know everything. Development is an industry in which you are constantly learning.

Checked out your sites, there's a lot of loading and it takes awhile. I would take the Website optimization and the Front-End Performance Optimization Tracks on the Front-End Track. See what you can learn there about speeding up that loading!
