Depends who you plan on showing your resume to before you start your summer job.

i guess if it's at all relevant to whomever you're showing your resume, you could put it, as long as it was clearly labeled "projected summer 2011 employment" or whatever. i would only do it if it could be a potential talking point with whoever may see your resume.

Yes, if you use dates on your resume.

+1

always put future employment on your resume, with dates, if you are 100% going to be doing it, shows the company your interviewing with that you are pro-active/not just laying around doing nothing in between now and when you would start with them

Then yes. No problem putting a line on your resume to let them know what you'll be doing over the summer.
