Contacting recruiters on the job search: Should I be cold-calling them? If so, how should I go about it? Any other advice about this topic?

Some allow you to submit your resume in Word or PDF formats. Usually they don’t have a contact name to address a cover letter. Should I call and ask for a contact name if just to address the cover letter? Should I then send the resume direct to that person in leui if through their online resume submission processes?
Other times they have a form online to enter your information. The problem with this is my resume is not traditional with a lot of different consulting projects. I’ve spent a lot of time constructing this work on paper and the limitation of the forms won’t properly showcase my skills and experience.
There is other good info 1
Does anybody have any further advice on going the recruiter route? I’m looking particularly for international positions and have found very few through more traditional job boards such as Monster.com and others. Hence the recruiter route.
