Job notification options for non-members

Today I received a notification for a job posted by an outsourcer who had chosen to restrict it to Proz.com members. Not being a member, I wanted to filter this kind of notifications through some kind of option in the Job notifications page, but there wasn't such an option there. Did I look in the wrong place? If not, could this kind of option be included (only notifications for non-members, or something like that?).
It's not that I find it annoying, but I'd prefer not to receive notifications of jobs I can't quote on.
Thanks in advance.

I think it would be helpful if jobs that are reserved for members until some deadline has passed could be notified to non-members when that deadline expires, rather than concurrently with the notification to members.

No, we do not have that option yet. When the issue first came up, a number of non-members expressed a preference to be notified of job restricted postings, too.

Adding this option sounds like a good idea. I will make a note of it.
