Jobs in the U.S. are usually one of the two...but CISSP is seen as the gold standard so it will show up more frequently, where the CISM is a lot less known. I believe there is only like 30,000 CISM worldwide and around 80,000 CISSP in the U.S., which is more a testament of how many people will be familiar with one over the other not necessarily an exclusive club like with a CCIE for example.

ISC(2) recently proclaimed 125,000 certified individuals in the the January/February 2018 Information Security Magazine. I have no clue as to the number of CISMs out there but its hard to argue with the ISC(2)'s marketing and public relations departments.

Get both! IMO I think passing the CISSP first, gives you a great advantage and foundation of the concepts required to clear the CISM. This is comming from someone who wrote (and passed) both exams in the past 1.5 months.
