In today's EL market, if you have an offer in hand and nothing else concrete on the horizon, take the internship. Trying to find a full-time position is extremely tough as a career changer, and internship offers are even rarer. Whatever gets you that first bit of relevant experience is crucial. I'm a career changer myself, and my first position was an internship. I'm so glad I took that offer; not only was it a great introduction to the industry, it led directly to the full-time position I have now (even though it's with a different company).
