More critical is what one accomplishes in an experience / tenure. I often prefer the work / talent of numerous colleagues with but a fraction of the experience of longer-tenured people.
Are you the female environmental engineer? In general, I believe USA demographics for engineers in general, and women in engineering in particular, make the next couple decades or so a "buyers market" as the baby boomers retire. (Also obviously the health care field.)
Ditto. That's also why many positions list the degree requirements 'or commensurate experience'.
