I have UI which shows an applicant's picture on the left and applicant's information on the right and also an option to open the applicant's resume

enter image description here

when I click "Open resume" button this what it looks like

enter image description here

How can I display user resume in a better way with user-friendliness? In other words, how would you do it differently?

  • Can you please explain what you need help with specifically or what the answer you are looking for is? Design solutions are dependent on a number of variables, and user friendliness is subject to the needs of the specific user/user groups. By providing some ideas on what you want to achieve with the design it will help us to answer the question better.

Consider opening the resume in a modal popup, similar to the Mac application 'Preview' (see image below).

mac preview

Then the user can preview the content of the document, and decide what action to take from there.

If they decide to open it, I would suggest to open it in a different tab, so that the user does not lose their current page in your application.

    good answer, though consider the long term usage of this piece of knowledge. I edited to remove informal/personal language ("if I were you") as these answers should be considered to be more than just a specific response to one person. Think about it more as creating reference material for many people over time, rather than responding to an individual.
