If you are still interested in academics at all, check into some post docs or professorships. Otherwise, try to brush up your C++ and anything else which might look interesting and in demand. More and more I would discourage anyone from expecting any concrete advantages from advance degrees, particularly in computer applications.

I was able to get my company to send me on the Java Jam cruise since its cost was 1/2 the price of JavaOne. If a company does not want to train me and is too cheap to send em to conferences, then to hell with them. I will leave the company for greener pastures. Vote with your feet people; do not let the bean counters ruin you work. There are better companies out there.
