It seems like you're asking the same question over and over again. Honestly, no one can guarantee you a job, even if there are plenty of jobs (which there aren't, in any field, sadly enough). So no one here can really guarantee you that there are plenty of jobs or that, even if there are, you will be employed. You just have to start sending out resumes and applying to jobs as we all do and see what happens .

Excellent advice, mankato girl. Also, just to add, finding a full-time online teaching job for a university is nearly impossible. Most universities (both online for-profits and the more traditional state/nonprofit colleges offering online courses and hiring teachers) will provide contract-only work. That means that there is absolutely no guarantee of work. You might get contracted to teach a class or two and you might not - there is no real steady work with it. This is why many online college teachers are doing other things, both online and on-ground, or have many colleges that they teach for at the same time. You never know whether you'll get a course to teach and once it ends, there is no guarantee that you will get another.

That's the nature of the beast when it comes to online teaching and tutoring - you have to be open to having work that is not going to be steady. I personally prefer to see this as a positive, since it gives me a lot of flexibility and wiggle room to take classes when I can and teach as much as I can. But if you're the kind of person who needs to know they are going to teach X amount of classes per semester or have classes waiting for them to start once the current classes are finished, then online teaching might not be something you'll want to do.

Default Depends on what you want to teach...

There are so many things you can teach online.

I've been an online teacher for many years...I do teach mostly internet marketing, product creation, websites building and things like that...

but the earning potential is unlimited if you do this right.

You just need to find something YOU know...and have a passion to help others.

Hope that helps...although I know it's a bit of a broad answer and I don't have any college education.

I am self taught...but I have a passion to help others...

That is why I am here...

I hope you find something you can teach.
