You need longer comment boxes. :b

Employers like to hire people who already have jobs. No point disillusioning them on the resume as long as you still have one.

Just say present. You don't have to be honest about your job going away, it's something that will come up during the first pass and repeatedly in individual interviews, but putting a date in the future just looks weird.

The less weirdness on your resume, the better.

*ESPECIALLY* if they think you typoed and meant April LAST year. That would probably sink you even worse.
