An unsolicited resume is a resume that is sent to a company or organization without the employer requesting it or advertising an open position. The individual who sends an unsolicited resume is typically expressing interest in working for the company and is hoping to be considered for any future opportunities. This type of resume is also known as a "cold call" resume.
