Hi, I'm not sure about this rule.. After using "Present Perfect" can we use and infinitive, present continuous...both?..(I mean not at the same time)..Does it depend on the context?..any specific word? For instance (my doubt comes from the following sentence) I have given up hope ["to get" or "to getting"] a job before the end of the year. I would go with "to get" but I wanna know if the use of a gerund in that sentence (or any other after a present perfect) is right or wrong. Thanks!!!
