Been doing nun computer work all my life - How should I set up my CV?

Hi guys,

This is not my top priority at the moment, as I am still a bit too fresh to apply for work.
It still popped up in my head, and Google didn’t give me the right answers, or I didn’t ask the right questions.

Me being 33 years old, how do I put in 18 years worth of work experience(not relevant to IT), and still make it a CV about web development?

Thanks for all your help in advance.

Make a nice portfolio and let your dev projects be the first thing the recruiter would notice. Mention your non-programming work in such a manner that it would add some value to your personal abilities: being accurate, working under the stress, being good at communicating with people, time management pro and so on.

I’ve been toiling about this myself before you reply and pretty much came to the same conclusion.
The only problem I am still facing, is how to make them go and check out my projects when they receive my CV?

The CV should stand out above the crowd(at least a little) for me to physically(digitally) show them what I am cable of doing.
