    I'll go on sending my CV until finding a good job.

    Is this sentence grammatically right? Although I've never heard anything like that, I think it's right, as "until" is a conjunction and the subject of the two sentences is the same (I). I'd certainly say "I'll go on sending my CV until I find a good job. If that type of sentence really right, how common is it in everyday English?

    It's wrong. Your version is right.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Is there a reason? A rule?

    After "until" you need a subject.
