YOU ARE THE ADVICE COLUMNIST: Which Job Should I Take?

The chance to possibly get a full-time job I love in the future, or take the full-time job I feel okay about now?

So I just moved a few months ago, and have been job hunting.  I want to switch fields to something I'm more passionate about, but recently, I wasn't having much luck so I applied to a position in my field as well.  So, here is my dilemma.  Today I was offered two positions: a paid internship in the new field, or a full-time job in my previous field. The paid internship pays only 2/3 of what the full-time job does, and is obviously far less stable, but it provides me the opportunity to break into something that might be a better fit for me.  At the same time, I am very low on funds after being unemployed for 3 months, so the full-time job is also very attractive (especially considering the fact that I would get health insurance again!).  What should I choose? The chance to possibly get a full-time job I love in the future, or take the full-time job I feel okay about now?

Which position would you chose? Let her know in the comments below!
