I know you're not looking for opinions but just some geek thoughts for you. If you're writing a CV, no offense to many of the technical experts on here but personally, if you're at a point in your career that you're writing a CV, I would consult a Professional Writer. A CV is like the age old expression "your first impression is also your last", I would make it as perfect as possible. As you may already know, technical people aren't the most skillful when it comes to communication.

Best of luck. :)

Some more thoughts: make more than one CV, and adapt your CV for the job you're applying for. When I'd be looking for a Domino Administrator, I would only be marginally interested in your development skills.

Best Practices: Disaster Recovery Testing

Besides backup, any IT division should have a disaster recovery plan. You will find a few tips below relating to the development of such a plan and to what issues one should pay special attention in the course of backup planning.

You already have the bullet points on one page. The limit for a CV or Resume is about a page and a half.

Minimize experience from farther back. I doubt anyone is interested in Windows 95 and 98 anymore, so there is nothing the write about there.

In the list above, pick the item that is most important to you, and then add "including ...." and limit things to a word or two. For instance:  "Perform Database backup operations" becomes "perform backup";  "Day-to-day user support on OS, Database &  applications –Level 2" becomes "user support"  or "Level 2 user support".

Put yourself in your reader's shoes. They are not interested in 20 or 30 7-page CV's. They just will not read them. So you need to reduce to one page or one page and a bit.

Just some additional notes, being from the States, a CV is a detailed resume and much different than technical resume.  Depending on your job search, a technical resume should highlight the require skills the job is looking for. Most hiring manager will be scanning for keywords, like some have mentioned, no hiring manager will be interested in a 20-30 pages CV. A technical resume typically should not exceed 2 pages and 3 pages would be stretching it.

For any of us (not just you), stuff we did 10 years ago needs to be highly condensed. It is not that is not valid so much that it is less relevant to today's requirements. Good experience is always helpful and an interviewer will know that.

You need to Google for Resume Services and then go to your geographical area to find one.

Another good source is job hunting network groups. These spring up in local neighborhoods and are really self-help groups. Look for community groups in your area.

Because the services are local, you need to do your own hunting.
