You are about to start an internship (next week) and you are also applying for a job that starts in May(deadline is tomorrow), do you list the internship as a "future" experience?

Thanks

    Write what you're most likely going to be doing in present tense and date it January 2013 - May 2013....
    Example
    Internship at XYZ January 2013 - May 2013
    - Drafting CIM, Modeling pro-forma financials
    - Obtaining Coffee
    - etc IN PRESENT TENSE as if you are currently doing it.

    Hey,
    Thanks for the comment.
    But, doesn't it imply that I've started the internship?
    I don't want to misguide here...

    I was thinking to put the company name + title and then Expected Start Date: Jan 14,2013
    And one generic sentence what I will be doing there but in Future Tense...
