What makes a good resume

Hello Everybody,

I'm Wali, a bachelors student at BME, Budapest. I'm current studying Computer Science. Over the past few months, I have applied for various intern/trainee opportunities in IT/Software Engineering fields, but without any luck.

I used to believe that my resume was pretty average (considering that I'm a student with minimal professional experience), but after continuous rejections, I decided to overhaul my resume, and start from the scratch. This is what I ended up with:

Here is my LinkedIn profile:

I would really appreciate your feedback/review and tips about how to further improve my resume.

Nice resume but I don't think that OOP and Microsoft Office are a skill because you have mentioned that you know C++, Java etc which are already OOP and I every Software Engineer knows how to use Office hopefully.

well, good point... honestly, I saw a few "resume gurus" with perfect resume samples putting OOP and Office among their skills, so I thought I'd follow their steps.

As soon as I learn a few more languages (currently learning CSS, JS, HTML), I'd replace OOP and Office.
Thanks for your output.
