When we specify our working languages pairs in our profile, we also specify the type of service we offer in that language pair.
There are several choices for various translation-type work, and various interpretation-type work, and some others.
The job postings also specify whether the job requires translation or interpreting.
However, the job notification emails don't seem to be sent to those that actually offer the service type asked in the job posting.
Specifically, I am receiving job postings for translation jobs in language pairs that I clearly marked in my profile for interpreting only.
Could this be fixed? Or is it intentional?

The directory search seems to be OK in this respect (both the Classic and the Advanced directory), it will not list people that did not specify the type of service selected for the search.
