Since the income was for a "temporary job", meaning you worked for it; it is still considered self employment (business income), even though the amount is in box 3, instead of box 7.

But, there is a "one time gig" exception to calling it self employment. So, if you haven't done this type of work, in the past, and don't plan on doing it in the future, it can report it as other income.
