Yes, just put the time and effort in. Asking smart questions and showing initiative alone to me are enough for me to keep you around. Those traits show me that you do your homework, are diligent, and think critically. It’s a bit rare in the field these days tbh.

I would imagine it’d be really hard to get fired in financial reporting. Every company acknowledges there’s a learning curve when you first start also.
