I'd suggest:  "She is always looking what's in it for her."

 

I can't think of a good translation for "interesseira".  I have a Collins dictionary that gives "self-seeking", but possibly that is a British expression.  I think in the USA you'd have to explain what you mean, as Raquel did.  In Spanish the word is "intersado", somewhat close to the Portuguese word.
