Sara, I don't think that dyslexia will be an issue when applying for jobs. How are you coping with uni??? I don't think it is even necessary to mention that you have dyslexia when applying for a job.... because it is not neccessarily relevant to the job you are applying for....and as you know, there is still a lot of ignorance and predjudice out there, in the big wide world. If you can do the job, it is none of their business if you have dyslexia, it has no bearing on your ability to do the job, unlike somethimg like epilepsy, asthma. heart probs..when it would be necessary, in case you became ill at work....so they would know what to do.
If you tell them you have dyslexia it may put you behind the eight ball before you even start and if the person is one that doesn't believe in dyslexia, telling them will automatically put you out of the running.
I hope my opinion is of some help to you.
