When the blog Easily Amused posted the following link, we figured it had to be a joke. It's not. The blog says the document was pilfered from a Citibank office during a job interview. If you don't care to click the link, the title of the document, "What NOT to do: What women do to sabotage their careers," should give you a pretty good indication of its contents.

Someone later responded on the blog that the cards were distributed by a former head of diversity at Citi workshops for female employees. A Citi rep told WalletPop via email the list "... may have been used by an individual in HR," although a Citi rep responding to a blog post from the Los Angeles Times about the list said it was not part of a human resources program at the bank. The rep who responded to WalletPop's query said the list wasn't part of "formal" HR communication.
