You need to be really good at your interpersonal skills if you want to work as an Industrial Engineer. Below points will help you understand the importance of good interpersonal skills in this profession and how it will impact your career:

1. Industrial Engineers have to go to the factory and work with their team members in fixing the issues and working on various problems. They have to coordinate with a number of people in order to get things done. They are supposed to instruct the workers and ensure that everything is right on progress. In order to do that they have to be very good at their interpersonal skills and be more effective in their work.

2. Industrial Engineers have to meet their clients quite often and therefore they need to understand the clients' requirements so that they can propose the right solution. The conversations with the clients are usually very important from project's point of view. If the engineer is very good with his or her interpersonal skills, things go fine and the work is done in a nice manner.
