IT internship CV help

    Hi all,
    Im an 18 year old computer science student and im applying for a summer internship in ericsson in athlone.

    I would REALLY appreciate if anyone could look at my CV and give me tips on if i did anything good or on what i did wrong. Thanks.

    I have only about 2 and half weeks of work experience under my belt. all of which is irrelevant in applying for a job in IT.
    I've attached my CV and cover letter for this job.

    I went to a CV workshop and completely re-did my CV
    I think i did a good job.. I hope

    The guy who held a talk on this internship mentioned not to put any experience one might have in a bar for example (because its irrelevant)
    but the woman in the workshop said put it in anyway

    Do you have a github/bitbucket account with projects you have worked on or contributed to?

    You should add it to your CV as it is a better way of showing off your skillset.

    Tidy up the indentations on the CV. They are currently not lined up and it makes it difficult to read.
