      Hey there again – I’m glad that you’ve asked through here. Great! Each person is different obviously, and in my experience, I think it would have been better for me to gain a bit more experience in different fields before settling on a degree.

      So to answer your question I’d have gone for an internship, or several, if I couldn’t find a part-time job. A CV full of experience is far better than an empty one because of jobhunting. Of couse getting your training costs covered by a company would be fantastic, but might be an idea to keep options open, especially in this economic climate.
