wtf you bumped this thread while it was on the front page?!

You have any leadership experience in school?

Do you value your technical skills higher than your work experience?

The summary part is pointless... either put an objective or take it out.

Organize your coursework... its just all jumbled up right now.

And where are you that you dont have a job yet? You must be in the wrong place because around me programmer positions are all over the place.

It looks better, but still needs some organization work IMO. It's good that you picked out some of your relevant coursework, but expand upon it. For example:

Technical Skills
Data structures and algorhythms:
- Led a small team in designing and implementing an e-commerce website (Univserity of Massachusets, 2005)
- Integrated new functionality and extended existing test framework in JAVA for PRODUCT; a web-based client-server program for monitoring COMPANY storage arrays. (The Corp, 2005)

Just roll all your work experience under the Tech Skills header and lose the work experience section altogether. That will make you look more experienced and more tech-oriented.

Also, lose all references to "student", "school", etc. The stuff you did in college was for the University of Mass.

Get rid of the summary, unless you're applying for a specific position. They all know what you want, and you're cutting yourself short anyway by asking for an entry-level position.

It's much improved from this morning. Remember, you can tailor it to each job you apply for, highlighting the skills they need. Next, start polishing up on your interviewing skills.

Good luck!
