The above points are very true, I'd also include examples of side projects you have worked on or hackathons or clubs you have attended to bolster your self taught skills, your resume should outline the languages you are proficient in and what you are also learning. Also highlight your soft skills such as teamwork, communications, adaptability, work ethic, etc..

Employers also look for finer details like in this post
"Make sure your code in online..."

A rounded well balanced CV with a demonstrabale record of 'wanting it's is always advisable, also ask if there is an opportunity for you to spend some of your free time at the office shows commitment.

Good luck in your search.
