It depends on what you want to do. What do you want to be doing over the next 20 years? What are your long term goals?

Have you looked at biotech at all? It is one of few sectors that is still hiring and your Chem background would be very useful.

I will suggest to expertise in One field how it look like that u've done chemical engineering after that prgramming and them going for Mangement line, Whatever u do u should plan it for long term not for short term, Another thing I can suggest u as JIM has suggested Biotechnology, There is a field in biotechnology called Bioinformatics It combines Information Technology with Biotechnology, and as u r a chemical engineer and Java programmer it will be very good for you.
