BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - August 19, 2008) - HLM Venture Partners, a Boston and San Francisco-based venture capital firm specializing in funding health care companies, announced today that it has launched VentureCareers on its website to promote professional job opportunities at its portfolio companies.

VentureCareers is a career site used by over twenty of the country's leading venture firms to promote openings at their portfolio companies. The jobs posted through VentureCareers are aggregated at www.ventureloop.com, which currently has over 5,600 job postings at 726 venture-backed companies.

Through the VentureCareers site, portfolio company jobs are posted directly to a career page on HLM's website to solicit candidates. The site was developed by VentureLoop, which has a number of products and services designed to connect growth companies, talent, entrepreneurs and resources.

According to VentureLoop co-founder Jeremy McCarthy, "Through our extensive network of relationships with venture capital firms, entrepreneurs and service providers, we develop a valuable pool of talent for clients and save them the time and expense of handling recruitment themselves. Many of the job postings found on VentureLoop cannot be found on any other job board."
