Are you a young college aged student hoping to land a dream internship in a New York ad agency? If so, you may have noticed a creepy looking dude named Donald Buscando has visited your LinkedIn profile.

At first you may freak and lock things down like a 13 year old hiding their social media profiles from their parents. But don't. You might miss out on a sweet gig. You see, Donald is the creation of Mother New York and it's all part of a summer internship recruiting program.

If you make it to Donald's profile, you'll see some oddities sprinkled with a basic recruitment message:

"I spent a few hours on your profile looking deep into the soul of your business related online identity. From what I saw, you should apply.

Are you a copywriter or art director? I've closely examined your portfolios and you should apply.

Are you a designer? You have beautiful with bezier curves. You should apply.

Are you a strategist looking deep into what makes people tick? Yes. You should apply, too.

Do you want to work in the shop? Don't know what that is? Sounds like you should apply.

Are you a producer who makes things happen? I've seen your profile and yes you are. Yes, apply."
