I don't like the bolding of skills. Yes, those are the most important. But the bolding is awkward. Listing them first is good enough.

I'd also consider writing "Applied Statistics" for the VEE, since that's what it's called. I also assumed when you said that you had completed them that you had completed all of them. I don't know how much completing 2/3 will help you. On the off chance that the employer really cares whether you completed VEE, putting that might actually draw attention to the fact that you have not completed VEE. When I was applying for jobs, I only had the Economics credit, but I never put that on my resume since I thought it might draw attention to the fact that I would have to complete the other two after employment. Then again, I'm probably crazy, since I tend to over-think things like that.

Overall, in my opinion, it's looking good now. I'd consider hiring you. But I have zero hiring power and won't for a while.
