I am looking for a job and am starting to work with some external recruiting firms. Do you have any suggestions/advice/wisdom for me?

I am trying to broaden my job search and have sought out a couple of recruiting agencies (recommended by friends). I have meetings with two different companies this week. I am a bit nervous because I have only ever applied to positions directly with companies before and this is new territory for me!
I'm looking for advice, tips and wisdom from past experiences - whether you have been an applicant who has worked with recruiters or you've been a recruiter yourself. What should I be prepared for, both in terms of this first meeting and then the process beyond? Anything I should or shouldn't do in particular?
If it is relevant, I am looking for a marketing job in the SF Bay Area and I have about six years of experience.
