In an interview with CNBC before the jobs data release, Chicago Fed President Charles Evans said that the timing of a rate hike was "not really that important."

"Two rate hikes in 2016, that's my own call for that, if the data continue to be in line with my outlook, that's a slow and gradual increase this year," said Evans, an alternate member of the Federal Open Market Committee.

"Timing's not really that important, you mentioned possibly two summer hikes, that would be a little bit more than I'd say is … priced in to the dots certainly and the market expectations," Evans added.

"Timing's not really that critical for my viewpoint, as long as by the end of this year we're at just a little under 1 percent," Evans added.
