Can experienced programmers take a look at my resume?
Can I get some criticism on my resume? Things such as highlighting and listing relevant information, etc. I'm looking for entry-level/junior positions and am a somewhat fresh graduate.
I have also never professionally been a programmer so all my listed experience is all that I've got. The format came out weird because I just copy-pasted it but I can assure you that the formatting is proper on my version.
