Boulot vs travail

Could the postman say “je fais un boulot important”?

Hi Adelaida, 

It is simply because 'boulot' is slang argot ) and 'travail' and 'métier' ( given as possibilities)  are not and carry more weight in this exercise.

"Travail" est le mot juste et correct. "Boulot" est le mot familier, à n'employer qu'à l'oral et dans un cadre informel. 

Hope this helps!
