If you find anything that can be optimized in that product, then take that particular area that need to be optimized in that product and work on that. Make that as a project proposal and place it in your briefcase. When the salary negotiation comes, take that proposal i.e. your work done on G maps out from the briefcase and give it to the interviewer.
