For the past few years, the average pay raise in the U.S. has hovered around 3%, but some industries are better off than others.

The company looked at its own data, as well as data from the Economic Research Institute to determine what the data looks like across a number of different jobs and industries.

Electromechanical technicians had the highest increase in percentage at 9.3 percent.

Here s their breakdown of the highest year-over-year salary increases:

Engineering: electronics/computer engineer 8.31 percent ; mechanical engineer 7.38 percent ; quality engineer 7.36 percent

Information technology: network engineer 7.21 percent ; software engineer 5.48 percent ; project manager 3.87 percent

Manufacturing and logistics: electromechanical technician 9.29 percent ; assistant plant manager 8.05 percent ; maintenance manager 6.65 percent

Office and administration: office manager 6.68 percent ; call center representative – general calls 4.55 percent ; accounts receivable supervisor 4.50 percent

As MarketWatch points out, just because these jobs show the largest increases doesn t also mean they offer the best potential for growth.

Reporter Catey Hill explains:

For example, the Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that electromechanical technicians will experience a 1% increase in job growth from 2014 to 2024.

And, of course, you aren t guaranteed a raise by working in these fields, and may, in fact get a bigger bump by switching industries or jobs.
