"Someone who started a new work/job/etc but has a long way in front to achieve the goal."

Do you know of any word?

    A venturer is not someone who has "begun" a journey or a new job.

I'd described them as budding at what it is they're starting:

(of a person) beginning and showing signs of promise in a particular career or field: budding young actors.
