Justin, I've dealt with *hundreds* of recruiters. Here's what separates
the good from the bad:

* The good ones have *relationships* with their clients. They know their
client's needs, and *talk* to them. If they have a client that's right
for a job, they know it - and know how to approach the client. They won't
ask you to rewrite your resume - they'll just do it, and do whatever
else they need to get you in the door.

Another good quality for a recruiter is if they know the company they are
trying to place you at. Even though at some consulting firms a manager,
account manager, or sales person will also work an account, the recruiter
should ideally be "in the know" about what's up with the company. They
should be able to give you tips on your interview.
