You could probably leave out DOS, or mention it in a way like, "I have extensive experience with computers dating back to the DOS era of computing. But I'm not sure who would really care about DOS other than the guy Qui gon jon has with calendar issues. lol

I spend about 15-30 seconds on applications/resumes when I look at them. Seriously, Usually 5 seconds if they have a criminal record. Then, seriously look at the ones I didn't toss. Usually 5 or less.
Make yourself stand out. Find out what their goals are and find what about yourself meets those goals.
"Opportunity" is a word corporate likes to hear. Basically, you don't have a problem, you have an opportunity.
Shows a proactive attitude instead of a reactive one.
All I got.
Oh...everyone slightly fluffs a resume. But, don't fluff it beyond reason.
The things I hear in interviews would astound you......

Nutty like squirrel terds!!!
Anyone have a good template I can use? My current one is a pain to edit.
If you have MS Office I can send you one. Honestly, certs give a little more weight to the OJT part of your knowledge I'm afraid. Have you thought about getting your A+, Net+, Security+ or (eventually) your MCSE and/or Cisco certs? If this is what you want to do for a profession I would HIGHLY suggest you pursue the previous suggestions. Just my opinion though.
I do have MS Office. Have I thought of Certs? Honestly no. I have a ball buster that wants me to pursue a degree in another field. If they would like to pay for it, then fine. I don't for see that.

The economy has turned around...has been for a while. We're much busier...and even in real estate, my wife is cranking...she's made more in the past 5 months than the prior 2 years combined..and she did pretty well last year. The housing market is a good measure of the pulse of the economy.
IT jobs are plentiful. Yeah, the market is very competitive...you have to actually work hard at getting a job, you have to be aggressive and market yourself with confidence...the competition is fierce, but the openings are abundant.
