So many times it happens that a job seeker has to submit an unsolicited job application. The issue that a job seeker does not get a response on the sent applications is because majority of the people are actually applying for minority of vacancies which are available.
Hence, in my opinion, submitting an unsolicited application still worth because it is an off chance which can click for a job seeker. When an HR professional is not hiring and suddenly his/her email pops up with a catchy subject line, there is a great probability that the email will be opened and resume will be reviewed. Bottom line, do not underestimate the purpose of submitting an unsolicited job application.
I have recently taken sometime out to draft an email template for job seekers to submit their unsolicited job applications. The users of it are free to edit between the lines and rearrange the contents as necessary.
