Nonfarm payrolls climbed 213,000 after an upwardly revised 244,000 advance, Labor Department figures showed Friday.
The job gains in the establishment survey were broadly based.
Average hourly earnings of private-sector workers rose 2.7 percent in June from a year ago, in line with recent monthly readings, suggesting that wage growth remains modest.
U.S. equity markets are rallying at the mid-session in reaction to a stronger-than-expected headline number in the U.S. Non-Farm Payrolls report.

Among industrial sub-sectors, the three standouts for jobs improvement in June were: "education and health services", +54,000; "professional and business services", +50,000; and in a long-time-coming and pleasantly-welcome development, "manufacturing", +36,000.
