comment Why is the c family the standard CS study regiment for Mathematics/CS programs instead of the LISP family?
Much the same way LISP "echos the actual mathematical model of an algorithm", C echos the actual structure of the hardware and it is straightforward how constructs in C map to memory (which is naturally especially useful for embedded systems). However, I totally agree with you. I would have appreciated some more undergraduate coursework in LISP so I could really dive into it further

comment Should I not show all my skills?
"What would be a flag to me is the self-labelling as expert (if you haven't published a book for a major publisher or spoken at major conferences or have the equivalent of a Microsoft MVP) coupled with the small amount of professional experience. Real experts get pursued by companies; they don't generally need to apply for advertised jobs." +1 for excellent point

That is a very good point. Saying you're an "expert" in too many things may cause reviewers to roll their eyes and move on.

comment Is the science of Computer Science dead?
"[1]IT seems to me that you are doing IT and not CS and that shouldn't imply that CS is dead. [2] CS is not dead, is just that most jobs are in Software development". Your 1st statement is correct -- the OP is in IT and not CS. I do take issue with your second statement, however, as many so-called "computer scientists" also do software dev. It's called "research and development", and an example may be of computer scientists defining, solving, and proving the correctness of a routing algorithm over certain networking topologies, then implementing the "official" or prototype implementation
