He became a newspaper reporter, covering local government and cultural events for the Norwich Bulletin.

New Britain was a very political city, but Bill was able to see through the chaff. He also covered a major civil service corruption probe while there. Meanwhile, his appetite for politics grew in 1985 when he became The Herald’s political reporter, covering the Connecticut State Capitol and politics.

He graduated in 1990, six months after changing careers to become the media relations manager of the Connecticut Business and Industry Association. He was still writing, but this time it was subjective instead of objective.

Eight years later he continued in the public relations world, becoming managing director of Jacobs & Prosek Public Relations. He represented utilities, law firms, not-for-profit organizations, banks, manufacturing firms, and real estate developers as he led the public affairs practice group. After another 10 years, he formed his own public relations firm, while simultaneously serving as an adjunct professor teaching public relations writing and corporate public relations at Quinnipiac University.

Finally, Bill became a job developer for the ARC of the Farmington Valley in Connecticut, networking with businesses to secure jobs for the intellectually disabled.
