I have passed my OSCP exam on first try (lucky me 😉 )…
But now Im wondering whats next…
Are there any certs that ‘come” naturally after OSCP? I dont mean OSCE because Im thinking of that one to take January…
If You guys have any advice please share with me :)(job wise too)

I don’t know what “comes naturally” after the OSCP, but there are several other certs that may be useful to you. The CEH is beloved by HR folks and may be good for passing paper screenings. Most actual penetration testers will be more impressed by the OSCP but the HR people may not know what that is.
If you want to work for the U.S. government or a government contractor, you should really look into the CISSP. The feds require certain certifications to do work at various levels and the CISSP is the cert that covers the most ground. The CEH is also helpful for government work.
If you want to show off (or improve) your networking skills, the CCNA and CCNA: Security would help you there.
And, if you have money or an employer willing to pay, the SANS certifications are worth looking into, off-hand the GCIH, GPEN and GWAPT seem the most applicable. The downside is that the courses are expensive.
Congrats and good luck.
