Yes, I think networking is very very important these days. I listened to both videos and here are some highlights I got:
1. Don't quit your job before you find another one
I did the wrong thing before myself and spent over 2 months to find another job. You never know what might happen, so better to play safe.
2. Be aggressive, strategic
Elevator pitch is important for sure. Communication is key is important in most jobs.
3. Network/find somebody in that company
4. Resume blocking tool interesting, but I would be even more conservative on that one.

Also, I find this to be especially interesting to know. "unemployment benefit doesn't apply to business owners or self-employed!"
So, there is the risk of starting up your own and end up broke!
