HALEDON - A recent college graduate from Haledon is trying to make himself stand out in a tough job market by wearing his heart on his sleeve, in the form of his resume.

Class of 2011 William Paterson University graduate Mike Castelluci will run the Chicago Marathon next week while wearing his resume on his back.

Castelluci says he has sent out 250 resumes and still hasn?t gotten his dream job at a record label. He says he is "hoping it catches the eye of a racer or someone in the crowd," especially a prospective employer.

Castelluci is also running for a good cause. He is raising money for the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation.
