Definitely do the 401(k) to the extent of the match. If they do a 100% match up to 2% of your income, this would be an immediate 100% return on your investment. This would be nearly impossible to beat.

So invest in the 401(k) to the extent of the match, and if you want to invest more, *then* invest in the Roth IRA.
