G'day everyone

I just got a jobs notification via e-mail and in it there was the line "Native language: Must be native in target language", but on the web page of that job it says "Preferred native language: Target language(s)". To my mind, these two lines do not say the same thing. Don't you think the e-mail notification should rather say "Native language: preferably be native in the target language"?
