Looking over the list for men, you’ll see three spots tied for occupations offering a high potential for raises. But let’s start with surveying and mapping technicians, who take the lead for pay raises among men. This career offers 11% on average growth rate for jobs until 2026 , providing more opportunities to pursue it.

At No. 5, we see that parts salespersons — those behind the counters of auto parts stores, dealers and wholesalers — saw a 24% salary increase from 2016 to 2017. This career cluster for car aficionados can earn up to $52,330 in the 90th percentile, BLS reports.

Finally, if you’re looking for a job that typically requires only a high school diploma but offers a potential salary increase of 20% on average, chances are the field of stationary engineers and boiler operators could be a fit. Making up about 36,000 jobs in the US, it’s expected to experience a 5% job growth rate until 2026.

What about decreases?

Not all careers reliably boost an employee’s finances. Plenty of careers failed to make our list due to rapidly declining salaries.

For women, a cluster of probation officers and correctional treatment specialists experienced the deepest salary decline among other occupations. These careers saw a 15% decline in salary between 2016 and 2017, from $52,208 to $44,616.

For men, we again saw a tie for careers offering the sharpest decline. Salaries for both bartenders and chemical engineers dropped 14% from 2016 to 2017. Male chemical engineers reported a median salary of $84,812 in 2017, down from a median $98,852 in 2016. In the same time, male bartenders saw their median salaries drop from $36,452 to $31,200.
