positions. as a result, candidates are increasingly using interviews to determine whether the company and the potential new boss are the right fit. how could you identify a bad boss? start with the basics. a potential boss who is late for the job interview is not giving you the importance you deserve. is the potential boss enthusiastic during the interview? is she focused on you or distracted and willing to be interrupted by email, calls or texts? avoid accepting a job for a boss who doesn't give you her full attention during the interview. and be wary of the manager who has an excessive sense of self importance. this person may be willing to steal your ideas and take credit for your work. finally, don't be afraid to walk away if the interviewer doesn't have a clear vision for the job and can't communicate what it will take for you to be successful in the position. i'm jill schlesinger for kpix 5.

5:37 am
flush with extra money and that's led the governor to revise the state's budgets. the state has an additional $6.7 billion in revenue. the adjusted numbers mean $2.2 billion for drought relief, $62 million to fight wildfires, and a $380 million earned income tax credit for the state's working poor. there's also an important deal to avoid tuition hikes at the university of california campuses. the uc system will get a $120 million increase plus the governor has agreed that the state will pitch in $436 million to uc's underfunded pension. it's part of a compromise that means in state undergraduate tuition at the ten uc campuses will not go up for two years. the markets are reacting favorably to data showing fewer jobless claims. >> jill wagner of joins us. >> reporter: the markets
