I'm definitely feeling the feels in this thread. Thank you for sharing. I'm a bit of a newbie in Clojure and software development in general. I'd estimate about 5 years software dev experience with my latest 2 in Clojure. Cisco had a couple of openings a couple weeks ago, and I had a couple of recruiters contact me, one internal to Cisco. She was quite nice, and looking for someone with a bit more experience than me. That being said, from her perspective, Clojure was growing. Maybe, she was biased because Cisco has a Clojure shop, but she thought it was going to replace Ruby / Rails soon. She encouraged me to continue on my Clojure journey. That's only one data point, but it seemed relevant.

That being said, I'm shifting gears from mass-sending resumes and applications, to more carefully curated resume submissions.
