Do you live in the US? If so, what area do you live in? I ask because there are only a few places (SD, SF Bay, SLC, Bos, DC metro, NJ) where chemists working in industry can make a decent living. So, you might have to move just to find yourself a decent opportunity.
As far as applications go, don't even bother. Get yourself partnered with a head hunter. Start by sending out your resume to talent recruiting companies around your area.
