Earlier this week, the Institute for Supply Management separately reported that both the manufacturing sector and services added strength in June, a broad-based pickup that implied the expansion was adding momentum.
The Labor Department revised its estimate for May job growth up to 190,000 from a previously reported 157,000 and said there were 122,000 new jobs in April instead of the 80,000 it previously estimated.
While solid, the second-quarter hiring rate was not sizzling and analysts said it was unlikely to spur Fed action unless it appeared a hiring squeeze might be developing.
"From the Fed's point of view, it's still steady as she goes," said economist Stuart Hoffman of PNC Financial Services in Pittsburgh. "The Fed is not going to be any less concerned about inflation but it is not going to be more concerned about it either. It's a 5.25% federal funds rate as far as the eye can see."
All the hiring came in service industries during June.
There were 135,000 new jobs in the service sector including in health services, hospitality businesses and government.
The goods-producing sector shed 3,000 jobs. There were 18,000 fewer jobs in manufacturing businesses in June, on topof 7,000 lost in May.
