Expunging or sealing a criminal record in Illinois, Can it be done?

I am 45 now and when I was 18, I got caught up in something stupid and have a felony theft conviction on my record from 27 years ago. Is there a possibility of getting this expunged or sealed. I am considering applying for other positions and am afraid this is going to haunt me.
