      Hi Snethemba,

      As you can notice in our correspondence with Portia above, it seems most of the links on the Eskom website are dead. Which is very sad for a company that important.

      Now back to your question:
      Ever heard of taking chances? The only thing that can stop you is you not taking a chance.

      So, I’d say go for it and see how it goes. There is little to nothing that can wrong…

      Wishing you all the best in your career.
