HOUSTON, Tx, -- If you want a frequent raise, then you should think twice before becoming a nurse practitioner or assistant professor.

According to Payscale, those are just a couple of the careers with the worst wage-growth.

A few more slow-growing salary careers include accountants and sales representatives.

An assistant professor would only see an average growth of about $4,000 over the course of 20 years.
