Applying for a project with a skill not mentioned on your profile

Hi! I only registered on Upwork yesterday. I focus in translation/copywriting and I only mentioned skills related to it on my profile. An old client of mine has a data entry job he wants to hire me for on Upwork. I did it for him before, and he's satisfied. Can I accept it if data entry isn't even mentioned on my profile? Won't I violate any rules? Thanks!

It is not "against the rules" provided it is a real job and a real client... (Not a friend / relative hiring you to get you started)

 

One word of warning - you have not done any jobs on Upwork yet, and clients may not take you as seriously as a copywriter and translator when the only work you have on your profile is a data entry one, especially if it is for little money.
