Fusion cost about $ 1500. usd.
Nuke $3500.

Iv seen amazing work from both compositing packages.
Fusion has alot more tutorial for it. And id say its easier to learn.
Once you have a good understanding of compositing then you might think about nuke. Im not saying you cant learn nuke if you are new to compositing, the gnomon tutorial on nuke are quite good.
I think fusion is more widely used .

what software do the places you would like to work use????

I work in Maya, Real Flow and PFTrack c Boujou. I am impressed with the list of films made in Fusion that you will not tell about Nuke.

Uh...I tend to say Nuke. Nothing against Fusion, but Nuke has been used on more feature films, supports more streams/layers in realtime than most compositors and has a bit more robust 3D features. More to the point I would say to consider waiting until after Siggraph to see what the new Shake will look like. Nuke does a few more things than Shake atm, but Shake is still the most common standard.

I would have to agree with Imhotep397 wait and seeing what the new shake is like . Before spending the money .
How often do you use the 3D features in every day compositing work, especially
when just learning?
Worry about learning the basics of compositing before worrying about the bells and whistles.
I really liked shake and found it fairly easy to learn.
