Better way for doing this is using the ViewState bag. Almost the same than using Session, except that ViewState are'nt taking server memory.

Best practice is : Save small common object type into ViewState (Ie, string,int,datetime) and save Huge objects (XmlDocument,Dictionary,etc..) into the Session bag.

PS: ViewState value will only longs while you are posting back a page, Session will last as long the session is alive.

Using ViewState bag :
At the Page_PreRender event, Save the String into the ViewState :
ViewState("viewstateKey") = WorkExperience

At Page_Load get the previously ViewStateValue
WorkExperience = ViewState("viewstateKey")
