No one stumbles into assassination or tries it out for a lark. It's a calling. How you came into this work never matters, it's how fast you learn the trade. It's not something you can walk around calling yourself simply by blowing someone's head off and getting a small wad of cash for it, any idiot can do that. To be considered a true assassin, you have to prove you're capable of getting the job done.
