In my opinion there is no contest: I vote for MVC.
The fundamentals of a protocol agnostic service mechanism (WCF) is very interesting in theroy but in reality it is a pain in the neck (debugging and configuration) for almost every user. Many architecs are reverting from it now in favor of home made API or technology like WebAPI.
MVC will serve you more on your resume.

Not a correct question, nearly off-topic. Nobody can give a valid answer, because we don't know your background and criteria...

OP is just looking for opinions.

I do understand that, but an opinion not based on some knowledge about OP is not so valuable... And MVC and WCF cannot be considered as alternatives...

As SA said. You cannot get an answer without background. As for the first comment. You can't go MVC if you are talking about service bus's, tcp and socket communications or anything real time. my opinion is that MVC (more to the point WebAPI that was spawned from MVC and MVC not being a service anyway its a pattern) is for websites. WCF is for complex services. WebAPI is for http based services that compliment http based UI's.
