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.

3. They have to work with the senior management team to plan the work ahead. For that they do prepare the reports and share it with the management team. Sometimes they are also required to give presentations for the same purpose. Again they have to be really good at interpersonal skills in order to be effective in those conversations. They should be able to convince the other members about their plans without getting harsh. This the need of interpersonal skills arises.

4. The industrial engineers have to contact the dealers and stay in touch with them so that they can buy the raw material and other important machinery for the industrial purposes. The deals usually require huge negotiations and therefore one has to be extremely good at their interpersonal skills in order to finalize the deals with best options for the organization. That way only they can provide the right contribution to their work.
