For example can you use environment description with minipage for this. See the code:

\cvsection{Skills}

\begin{minipage}[t]{.3\linewidth}
  \raggedright
  \begin{description}
    \item[Programming] Python, C/C++, Scala, JAVA, Node.JS, OCaml, LaTeX
  \end{description}
\end{minipage}%
\hfil
\begin{minipage}[t]{.3\linewidth}
  \raggedright
  \begin{description}
    \item[Web] Django with Python, Express with Node.JS, HTML5, LESS
  \end{description}
\end{minipage}%
\hfil
\begin{minipage}[t]{.3\linewidth}
  \raggedright
  \begin{description}
    \item[Languages] Korean, English, Japanese, Chinese
  \end{description}
\end{minipage}

It results in three minipages beneath each other ...

With the complete MWE
