Just Another Working Girl

"Real job", like what? Teresa's official biography doesn't exactly give one confidence that she is familiar with punching a time clock when the whistle blows:

After studying at the University of the Witwatersrand in South Africa and the University of Geneva, she moved to the United States and got a job working for the Trusteeship Council of the United Nations. In 1966, she married Senator John Heinz whom she met when they were graduate students and with whom she had three sons. Shortly after celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary in 1991, she lost her husband in a plane crash.

Turning down offers to seek election to her husband's Senate seat to take care of her sons, family and professional responsibilities, she became chairman of The Howard Heinz Endowment and the Heinz Family Philanthropies.

Hmm. Imagine Human Resources processing that application. A Mrs. Heinz has forwarded her resume for consideration in connection with a position with the Heinz enterprises.

Must have been a brutal interview.
