You'll find state by state and industry by industry employment data
for 2004 and 2005 at the following link:

See especially Table 6:

Table 6. Employees on nonfarm payrolls by state and selected industry
sector, not seasonally adjusted

which provides industry breakouts for:

Natural resources and mining 



Trade, transportation, and utilities 


Financial activities         

Professional and business services 

Education and health services 

Leisure and hospitality              

Other services                    



Similar tables are available going back to 1993.  Would these meet
your needs as an answer to your question?

Let me know.
