The American unemployment rate stands at a 16-year low, but one aspect of the employment landscape making less progress is wage growth.

Over the past 12 months, average hourly wages for workers rose just 2.5 percent, a slight miss from President Trump's stated 3 percent wage growth goal.

A pay raise may seem out of reach to many job seekers, but job search platform Glassdoor has created a list of roles offering the biggest potential for raises right now, based on the site's monthly Local Pay Reports. While many of these positions offer low starting salaries, their yearly wage growth leaves room for a continued increase in pay.

Take a look at the openings below if you're looking for a position where you can expect healthy year-over-year salary growth.
