Employment in San Francisco by industry, from the US Census Bureau's 2012 estimates:

Civilian employed population 16 years and over
447,467

Agriculture, forestry, fishing and hunting, and mining
1,017

Construction
18,775

Manufacturing
26,510

Wholesale trade
8,948

Retail trade
42,440

Transportation and warehousing, and utilities
15,599

Information
20,638

Finance and insurance, and real estate and rental and leasing
41,850

Professional, scientific, and management, and administrative and waste management services
88,339

Educational services, and health care and social assistance
88,415

Arts, entertainment, and recreation, and accommodation and food services
54,804

Other services, except public administration
23,616

Public administration

In any case, it doesn't matter that the Bay Area doesn't equal San Francisco when it comes to employment, because surrounding counties send 265,000 workers into the city each workday.
