My personal advice: don’t position yourself as a junior. There’s no such thing as “junior Clojure dev”. Tell the truth - you’re excited about Clojure and really want to write Clojure at your full-time job.

With the caveat: I’ve been considered a “senior” or better for like nine years now, I took a small pay cut to go from Scala+JavaScript to go to Clojure/Script, And four years and two jobs later took a good pay increase to go to golang+JavaScript, in a much better work environment

That said, I feel my time working in Clojure was well-spent

it's still worth to switch though imho, even if it will be a lot harder to go back to anything else after
