Putting port scanner in Python project on resume?

So last year (in my 3rd year, undergrad) I made a port scanner using Python. I put that on my resume and I am currently a 4th year in undergrad, about to graduate this May. Is this project good enough to keep on my resume or is this something expected from first or second years? I have internship experience on my resume too, in addition to personal projects, but I’m not sure if this is one worthy to keep on my resume. Thought I’d ask on here, I’d appreciate any kind of feedback!



In my opinion if there’s space for it that isn’t taking away from something more impressive/relevant than its fine to keep


This is something I encourage my mentees to do. Mine your academic experience for things that will be work relevant and give you a springboard to talk shop and show off what you know.

Resumes are tough for kids coming out of school, because you just don’t have that much experience, and I see kids just putting down any job to show that they’ve worked. Stuff like this is much more worthy of the space than the waiter job you’ve been doing for the last few years.
