There are couple of my friends getting laid off from their company, who are working in the Enterprise Content Management, Content Management System and Web Content Management market in Bay Area, CA and in India. Is the job market not good? Is there any implementation going on in companies for ECM? Atleast for WCM and document management and/or collaboration implementation projects are going on in various companies.

I went ahead and did some research on this. I chose three Job search engines – juju.com, simplyhired.com and indeed.com. I chose an area – Santa Clara, CA 95050 and searched jobs for every ECM technology product for 100 miles around.

Technologies I chose were Alfresco, Sharepoint, Documentum, Oracle Stellent and IBM FileNet. The jobs could varu from implementation consultant, developer, project management, business analyst etc., You know what? The interesting find is – There are n number of Sharepoint implementations going on. Sharepoint is very very popular. Documentum is next, but not that high compared to Sharepoint. All others are just hanging in there.

Market is definitely bad and that kind of says – the situation of Job Market for ECM, CMS and WCM related work/projects. By the way – if you are an ECM company and if you want to definitely get job – learn Microsoft SHAREPOINT for now. You will definitely get job in this market too!!
