DIXON – A free program about nontraditional careers will be from 6 to 7 p.m. Thursday in the east mall of Sauk Valley Community College, 173 state Route 2.

“Soar and Explore: A Look at Nontraditional Careers” offers an opportunity to meet professionals in nontraditional fields to discuss skills and education needed to follow that path. Careers include women in welding, criminal justice, technology, and fire science, and men in nursing, administrative services, early childhood education, and human services. 

Business representatives will discuss job opportunities, and program coordinators will give tours of the campus, including the newly-renovated welding, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning, and manufacturing areas, science labs, and radiologic technology labs. 

For more information, call SVCC Instructional Services at 815-835-6406.

At 7 p.m., Candice DeLong, a former FBI agent, will speak in the Mathis Theatre on “Special Agent: My Life on the Front Lines as a Woman in the FBI.” She carried out the manhunt for the Unabomber and went undercover as a gangster’s moll. Before retiring in 2000, she was head field profiler in San Francisco. Her appearance was made possible through Grater Talent Network, Inc. in New York. There is no charge to attend.
