personal statement

At the beginning of the personal statement, when I write the motivation or reasons for applying for the program, is it fine to write that I have a specific job that I want in the future, so I would like to study in that program?
Yes it's okay to talk about your career ambitions. If it's related to the subject you want to study it demonstrates a serious interest.
