Hi guys I was just looking for some advice and a second opinion. Currently I have found a job and volunteering experience. Unfortunately due to timetabling issues (usyd problems) I have to decide between them. The job is more related to my degree but I'm only a trainee and the job isn't really stable for the long term. The volunteering position is related to my degree but to a lesser degree compared to the job. However the volunteering position is more stable in the long term. Which one should I choose?

Well the job is at a tutoring/ education centre. I mainly teach/ help the secondary students with their worksheets and any questions. I also mark their work and do reception/ customer service roles on the side. The volunteer position is with the SPARKS programs with Vinnies. I mentor refugee primary school students. I also help them with homework and play games with them.
I'm doing an education degree specialising in secondary teaching, which is why the job is more related to my degree but the volunteering does sort of relate to my degree.

Go with tutoring/education centre - what do you mean it's not stable? In the long term you'll always be able to find a tutoring job once you have some experience at another centre.
