Fall into [a job, career]

< Previous | Next >
Hello everyone,

Is the use of "by accident" really necessary with "fall into" in the contexts below?

a. I didn't fall into this job by accident. It was carefully planned.
b. Well, I must say I fell into this career by accident. I had been studying to be a teacher then I became a secretary.

Meaning intended of "fall into": start a job or career by accident, by chance, without planning.

Thank you in advance!
