It’ll be a drag to change all your legal stuff (ID etc) But other then that probably not much

Would it create any problems in regards to job applications? Also what all will I need to get my name changed on? Passport, ID, driving license only?

It can sometimes be a pain up the arse but if you change everything and have authentic proof of the name change, it is manageable.
It's always a question, have you changed your name in the past? Or similar wording

The fact that you're a dual national might cause you issues. You might find that the process for changing your name in country 1 might not have legal effect in country 2, and hence that you need to go through two different processes.

Check to see what the process is in both countries before you start, so you know what the practical processes are (and whether it's even possible!) If it possible to change your name in both countries, it might turn out to be best to do it in a particular order.

A lot of admin. Plus the fact that changing anything leads to confusion.
