Is it wise to put future summer internships that you have signed offer letter for on your resume when applying to full time positions?

I will be applying for Fall 2019 graduation full time roles starting in January/February and have secured a Summer 2019 internship at a social media company (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc)

This is for unicorns or FAANGs like Uber, Google, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc.

Any help will be appreciated and feer free to DM if needed.

    No. At best, you can demonstrate what you intend to work on, but even that is not guaranteed. I’d think it’s just pretentious.

      My first internship was at a no name company so the next internship is a big step for me which is why I wanted to include it to show I cleared the engineering interviews at those companies.

      Thanks for your input.

      Since you are new grad, do you have a courses section on your resume? Maybe you can include it there.. I guess your goal would be to get past resume filtering/recruiter, so I can see it helping there.
      I was mostly thinking that I cannot imagine an actual engineer caring much about what you haven't even done yet.

      Thanks and makes sense. I will ask this question when Blind is more active tomorrow evening to gather more data points and opinions.

    My guess is it won’t be taken into consideration since it’s not experience you have yet but virtually no harm in adding it
