Add to my resume or not?

I have an internship coming up at a small (read: very small) venture capital firm Aug 2019-Jan 2020 while I finish my sophomore year. Since this hasn't happened yet should I add it to my resume or just leave it off? I will be learning valuation techniques and then attending a deal forum, where hopefully they decide to invest so I can gain some deal experience. Thoughts?

** should say Aug 2019-Jan2020

Once you start working at the place you can put on, that is what I would say

That makes sense, think I should forgo sending in applications and resumes until then?

August is not that long away but for me I changed it when I started working. But if you are looking for opportunities after you could probaby get away with putting it on there but dont put the experience you will get because you dont have it.

Things are so early nowadays that I got my junior summer internship before I started my sophomore internship. You can put incoming intern at x and put your job duties as the description if you want.

Resumes are meant to show things you have done not will do. Leave it off.

So far you're the only vote for leave it off

It's best to have your resume show experience you have, not things you will do in the future. If you want to discuss the upcoming internship it is best to do so in a cover letter or in an interview but I would advise against putting it on your resume if you haven't done it yet.

I recruited during an accelerated cycle, and like an above poster, I got my summer analyst spot before starting my sophomore internship. I learned at the super day that everyone else had put their sophomore summer internship before having started it, while I hadn't. I mentioned to my various interviewers what I'd be doing for the summer, but I had to find a way to work it in each time. It obviously didn't kill my chances, but it's become commonplace to list your upcoming internship. Now your internship isn't over the summer so there's more a bit more time in between your interviews and your start date, but I'd list it if you don't already have other finance-related internships in place.

If you do, then just find a way to mention it to interviewers.

I will definitely add it after I begin. I asked today because 2020 SA applications opened up and I'm throwing some hail mary's out to try and land something for sophomore summer next year.
