First and foremost, you must introduce yourself when you get on the phone with a headhunter. Let them know what your background is and what kind of job you are looking for. That way, they can get an understanding of what direction you want to take your career in.
Be Polite & Professional
It is important to remember that the headhunter is working for a client in order to find the perfect candidate. Therefore, being professional and polite with the headhunter is a must. After all, this could increase your chances of having them submit your resume for different positions.
Keep It Short
Headhunters are usually very busy and may be recruiting for multiple opportunities at once. That is why it is so imperative to keep the phone call short. They do not have all day to help you write a cover letter.
