Swonk said she had been looking for 200,000 nonfarm payrolls and was not revising her forecast.
"I think we're going to have a good composition again," she said. "I think we're going to have some manufacturing gains. The ISM did surprise on the upside."
Economists are beginning to voice more confidence in job growth and the performance of the economy in general.
"The last two quarters of the year could be the best two quarters back-to-back since 2005,and that was before the trade data," Swonk said. "Growth easily exceeded 3.5 percent. At first we thought it was an inventory fluke—it was more than a fluke."
Third-quarter GDP growth has been revised to 4.1 percent. Fourth-quarter GDP will be reported Jan. 30.
"It's the trend in employment that matters., and the trends have been good," Swonk said. "What matters to me is not the number but also that the revisions have been good. In an economy you tend to miss stuff over time. You miss turning points. These numbers aren't very good at picking up turning points. They only catch it in the revisions."
She believes there was a turning point in the summer that was further masked by the impact of the government shutdown in October.
Dean Maki, Barclays chief U.S. economist, also is not changing his view about Friday's jobs report but is not as positive as Swonk, as he said temporary increases in unemployment claims in December show job growth weakened from November's level.
"We're at 175,000, and what's curious in the ADP report is the 48,000 in construction. I'm skeptical— whether it's some strange weather, seasonal adjustment affect," he said. " I have a hard time believing that was the trend in job growth in December. We'll see what the labor report did or didn't do on that front. It looks out of place."

Peter Boockvar, chief market analyst with Lindsey Group, said the ADP number and the coming jobs report will probably confirm the Fed's tapering.
"To me, that's the headwind for 2014," he said. "The Fed's no crutch, and when [stocks] are up 30 percent in one year, you have to believe you've priced in the good news."
