Hello!! I have a question for the chemists regarding careers.

I have a degree in chemical engineering. Last year I did an exchange in a country of Europe and was exposed to theoretical/computational chemistry, and I really want to go further in it. I am applying to several master's programmes which offer a specialisation on this subject. I don't stand a chance (due to the lack of credits) in organic, analytical, etc.; but since it is more related to PChem, I might have a chance (since it needs also phsyics and mathematics)...
I would like a simple life as it is in my homeland... I mainly teach and do research. However, imagine all goes wrong: I get no offers for PhDs, impossible to become a practical assistant, I suck at everything, or other things... What is the world today for someone that has in his/her hand a master which is oriented in theoretical chemistry? Does he/she have any job prospect outside academia/teaching? Maybe in pharmacy? Is the field plain dead outside universities?
Thanks in advance
