      I’m not aware of opportunities for watching movies, but captioning jobs require you to watch tv and type what people say. You can try a place like http://www.vitac.com/careers/

      Hi Sheila, I post jobs here at WAHS every weekday. If you’re not finding legitimate jobs, odds are you’re looking for the wrong types of jobs in the wrong place. You won’t find legit work stuffing envelopes, and most data entry and typing jobs are scams. Further, won’t just sign up. Work-at-home jobs are like traditional jobs; you need to have the skills and experience, and go through a hiring process. There is tons of information here at WAHS to guide you toward the right jobs and how to get them.
