Hi there! You've asked a great question, one without a clear answer - but there are a few different ways you could think about it. If you are working hard to pay off student debt/loans and the money will help you get there faster, that would be something to strongly consider. However, have specific experience in your desired career will absolutely give you a leg up in the hiring process post college and could potentially help you build relationships that will help find you a role once you have graduated. Consider if you could teach and then babysit as needed - it may help fill those financial gaps! Wishing you all the best!
