For Deloitte folks out there...

I recently turned down an offer because it was PDM, but would be interested if it was Core/Traditional.

I started my first job as a PM in Jan, 2022 in automotive field . I'm paid 80K CTC . I'm currently living in Ontario, Canada. I am a contracted staff, so my pay effectively will remain the same for some time. Since I have only 1 year experience, I am not sure if I'll be able to land a permanent job as well as a good hike. I'm planning to get my PMP but that requires 3 years of experience. What should I be doing till then? Stay or is it possible to get higher pay outside in supplier companies?
