Got off the call with recruiter yesterday and now I have an updated resume. Should I send the recruiter an updated copy or am I looking too desperate?

Mention that after the call you had a clearer understanding of the role and wanted to highlight relevant experience on your resume to better highlight your candidacy for the position. Resumes are like 2 pages max, so no way to showcase all your skills. Especially given the vast breadth of projects/skills in a Consulting career

Did they reach out to you initially? I think sending an updated resume will only beg the question "Why wasnt this ready for our call?"

If it hasn’t gotten to the hiring manager yet then send it - usually it’s good to highlight the material change and why u think it’s worth sending it - if it’s formatting just pocket it

It’s absolutely fine to update the resume. In fact recruiter insists on updating resume w relevant info you might have missed. You should send and ask to use the latest copy.
