using a session to pass a value from one page to another

I have a private admin section and one of the pages the user can view a load of outstanding jobs and for each one click a link to view more on that job.

This then re-directs them to a page where they see the additional data.

I don't want the user to see any id's in the querystring so I'm wondering is there anything inherently wrong with putting the id into a session variable, re-direct to the other page and then pull it out of session and destroy the session variable.

Any input appreciated.
