In a financial sense, your actual risk has a lot to do with your ability to keep expenses low rather than career stability. If you don’t currently have kids, and you don’t have a crushing debt burden, the first years out of college are a great time to try something risky.

However, one small caution. Risk means that there is a chance it won’t work out. So you really need to be proactive about networking, adding value, and learning during your internship, or it might not translate into the high earning career you’re hoping it will. PS- This is doubly true in political spheres (including lobbying).
